Working on a new children’s book!

I can’t seem to sit still for long. While I am waiting for my beta readers to send back book 2 of the Branyrd the Angel Series I began writing two stories for children, the beginning of book 3 in the Bedtime Stories for Children Series. Please check out books 1 & 2 which are already published and waiting for you on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


There will be six stories in book 3 as in the other books. This new book will not be published until possibly June. There may be another book in this series a few months afterward. I hate to make promises but I also plan to get back to delving into my fantasy series book 3 of Gateskin Chronicles which probably won’t be published until 2024. I was hoping to complete it in late 2023 but I don’t think this is possible. I have a tendency to give myself tough goals to meet, therefore, I will not push the limit of what I can do since I have not been well for a few months. I hope to get my health back to full strength soon.

If you haven’t checked out this series yet I hope that you will begin with book 1. As in all my children’s books there are valuable life lessons for children to learn as they read these fun animal stories. I hope your children will love these stories and request them at each bedtime or anytime.

Here are the life lessons that are in Books 1 & 2:

Make Believe: Bedtime Stories for Children Book 1: These six stories promote good behavior, encourage children to be kind to others, friends are important, differences should be accepted and that we are all unique and special.

Make Believe is Fun: Bedtime Stories for Children Book 2: These six stories help children to realize the importance of friendship, family, helping others in need and that it’s okay to be different.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post and for your kind support of my blog and books. Please come back again soon.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
