000 Moo's New Friend - Full Cover_1

Moo’s New Friend is released!

The fourth Moo Family book, Moo’s New Friend, was finally released! I was excited and scared, since this children’s book touches on a very sensitive subject for many.

The Author’s Creed (and ego)

Thou shalt not steal stories from others! That’s one of the creeds every good author lives by. It encompasses story suggestions from friends, fans, and critics.

Reminiscing

It’s interesting how families tend to do things simultaneously with no collaboration. My mother in law and her siblings often have similar things happen, such as purchasing the same new computer, buying a car on the same day, etc. My brother in law found a box of high school papers the same day I found an […]
