It will be a children's picture book called, Janoose & The Fall Feather Fair and it's a sequel for my first children's book, Janoose The Goose. This book I
co-wrote with my grandson, Luke when he was seven year old. In the book, the Fox returns to Free Range Farm and he wants something from Janoose. All the sketching for the book are finished and just need to be painted.
I'm currently finishing a book of my short stories: Short Stories and Other Imaginings For The Reading Spot. The book is being edited now and next I will put it together and be designing it before it goes to the printer.
Then I'll begin painting Janoose & The Fall Feather Fair.

Thank you for asking! ~JD(less)

Truth, As Strange As Fiction: What’s In A Name








I never liked my name. I can't really say why but I thought it might have something to do with my father always teasing me. He turned my name Janice into a twisted version of it but calling me Janoose The Goose! Yes, a goose. From the start I acquainted it with the cartoon character, Baby Huey, a large goofy duckling unable to fly. Baby Huey... Read more of this blog post »

“We hold one another close in this, our last moment and kiss. Your goodbye is in our lips, good luck wishes shine in those robin's egg blue eyes.”
J.D. Holiday, Stories And Imaginings For The Reading Spot

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Lao Tzu

“I must have my share in the conversation…”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
