New Children’s Book – Cover Reveal – Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier!




I am happy and excited to announce this new children’s book, Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier, has joined Jemsbooks family of books for young children Ages 1-8, Grades PS-Gr. 3, written in rhyme. I hope you and your children will love Lucy as much as I do!

Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier is now available on Amazon, Kindle  Barnes & Noble, and on this page on the right – all links are listed under book covers.


This book is based on my dog, Lucy, who I had for 16 years. She was quite a character and did all the things that are in this book. She loved my spaghetti with homemade sauce, watched TV shows featuring animals, hated baths, “sang” when music was played, and had two cherished possessions, a knotted rag and a ball. I hope you will enjoy reading about Lucy. She is no longer with us and can never be replaced.

Lucy was a special kind of dog. I guess everyone’s dog is a special kind of dog. Lucy gave me such joy, cheered me up when I was sad, and snuggled close when I needed a friend. I miss her still today.

My husband, John, created this book. Each time he illustrates one of my books he changes things up a bit and creates something different. When you look at this book you will see what I mean.


Thank you for stopping by and for your kind support!

Blessings & Hugs!
