He is the nephew of Papa, the beloved leader of the rats. Papa and the council wage an all-out war on the humans … Continue reading The Great & the Small – Review

A Great Gift For Young Readers

Consider giving the young reader in your family a book he or she will absolutely love. My book, Glazed Man & Rat Girl is a chapter book with 100 illustrations. It’s full of humor and non-stop action.

I’ve had lots of requests and demands for a hint of what the next story line will be, so in order to keep … Continue reading Glazed Man#2 Update
