Hammy’s New Home was my first book, published in 2015. Hammy is a little pig who loves to have fun with his friends and sometimes gets into mischief on the farm where he lives. Your child will love following this story and finding out what mischief Hammy gets into and how he ends up with a little house of his own. This book is easy for young children to read with colorful illustrations to broaden their imaginations.
I came up with this story while visiting friends who have a homestead and they had a pig named Sir Hamelot (aka “Hammy”). The book was fun to write and kids love Hammy!
My second book, If I Were A Duck, is an imaginative story that takes a child’s wish and brings it to life. Your child will love rhyming along while you read, and use their own imagination while thinking about what animal they could be for one day. Easy reading, colorful illustrations and a rhyming pattern will bring joy to your child.
I came up with the idea while waiting outside of a restaurant one evening. There was a pond nearby where ducks and geese were swimming and walking around in the grass. I started being silly and rhyming about the ducks and I decided to write it!
Annie to the Rescue is about a 5-year-old girl who wants a pet to take care of and love. Her parents think she is too young. Annie wants to prove to her parents that she is old enough to take care of a pet. One day, she gets that chance. Find out how Annie gets to have pets of her own!
This book is dedicated to an animal rescue organization called Pause 4 All Paws Animal Rescue, Inc. (P4AP) located in Herkimer County (NY), and the founder‘s daughter, Anicia. My idea came from Anicia’s love for animals, including her own two dogs. A portion of all book proceeds is donated to P4AP. Find them on Facebook!
Border Buddies is the first in the early reader’s chapter book series. Luke and Cole are two adorable border collie dogs who are about to get into mischief that will lead them on an adventure that will catch your child’s attention and teach them about the importance of listening to the rules. Everyone will enjoy following along in all their fun and exciting adventures in this warm and furry series.
Luke and Cole are my dogs and because of their fun and spunky personalities, I decided to write a series with them as the “stars.”
Chrissy’s Candy Shop is dedicated to – and inspired by – my sweet friend Christina Aiello (aka “Chrissy”) who has a business called Talk of the Tables – Candy Buffets by Chrissy. Her close relationship with her “nana” gave me the idea to use a grandma (Nana) in the story instead of a parent or sibling.
