The things we take for granted were once hard fought battles. My passion is to illustrate the norms of the past by taking my readers back in time and putting them in the minds of my characters.

I wrote a Children's book

I'm excited to introduce Police Officer Helga Hedgehog.
Officer Helga is a sweet lady that tries her best to be processional, but sometimes she gets so excited that she has to shake her back leg a bit just cause she can't help herself.
Enjoy, it's on the shelves in the bookstores.
And thank you to my readers for your support and encouragement.

Love to all and Happy Holidays! Read more of this blog post »
