Children’s Picture books

Yes, I’ve been a bit busy of late. Working on children’s picture books which for me is where it all began in the mid to late 1990’s! Non-fiction, Curious Kid’s Series, “Hey! Mr. Logger.” Available everywhere on every device, including paperback on Amazon.

Imagine That Kid’s Series. Fun and fantastical picture books. Hello, Guardian Angel, Jack’s Amazing (cool, fun, scary) Adventure, Whispered Dreams of Pretty Horses (all illustrations are hand-dyed art on silk! And more to come.

Kristen Lamb’s Blog about Using a Pen Name food for thought!

Kristen Lamb’s Blog

Today we are going to talk about a somewhat touchy subject. The pen name. Before anyone gets in a fluff, understand two things. First, I’m on your side. Secondly, this is only a decision you can make. My goal here is to make sure you guys are making educated business decisions. Thus, I won’t stop anyone from having a pen name, but about 95% of the time? It’s unnecessary….

For Writers – The Difference Between flawed Characters and too dumb to live reblogged from Kristen Lamb

As writer’s we’re always trying to perfect the story, keep it exciting and at least moving forward.  We hope to create characters that live on in the reader’s imagination after the story is done. There’s a fine line you don’t want to cross, and that’s where your characters do stupid stuff, to put it plainly. There has to be a reason, a motivation to their action that makes sense, so the reader doesn’t toss your book against the wall.

Great post by Kristen Lamb regarding the same:
