How many times have you heard a story about animal antics that you have said in your mind, “That’s a story someone should write about.”
Bits and pieces of stories put into words and melded with colourful illustrations bring these animal characters alive. That about sums up the children’s books that I write.
April 2 is Children’s International Book Day and there is no better time for me to tell you about the books for children I have published. The ones I am currently writing, and introduce the next one that will be launched later this year. Of course, I will also tell you about what the future has in store.
The Barn Cat Buttons Series didn’t start as a series. But...
The series features the sometimes cocky, crusty, loveable, barn cat and his acquaintances. Each of the characters in the books is based on real stories. The cast is introduced on a page dedicated to them at the end of the story.
Future storylines in the series will include a mule, some feathered friends, and a Hereford calf, to name a few.
Contact us if you would like to be notified when Norman is available.
Right, wrong, and common sense is some of the subtle undertones included in the story books we write for children.
The books are printed using white writing on a black background combined with vibrant character and scenery colours to bring the story to life. This is a process that can be helpful to those with a visual impairment to be able to read them.
Going forward, there are plans in place to incorporate some of the characters from the Barn Cat Buttons Series into teaching books for young children. A mixture of counting, colours and activities are already in the beginning stages for these books.
Read the reviews for Barn Cat Buttons Meets Princess Kylie and MUS, A Mouse Adventure.
If you would care to tell us what you thought about your copy of either book, your comments are welcome here.

Growing up, life, and events happened because they just did. As I got older, I had a different take on that thought, and every so often something would filter through my day creating a déjà vu moment. I maybe shrugged this off, but it got archived somewhere in the grey matter for future reference.
I was twelve years old the first time I read the trilogy by Richmond P. Hobson Jr. — a.k.a. Rich Hobson. Book one, Grass Beyond the Mountains took place some thirty years before I opened the cover. It didn’t take me long to grasp that I knew some parts of the country the setting was established in. Some would say it was in our so-called backyard. And how cool was it that he passed through our area to get to his destination. Naming towns along the way that were part of my life.
At that age, what I wasn’t acquainted with were the people in the book. Who better to talk to than someone I presumed knew everything, and maybe everyone…my dad. I did most of the talking and dad would nod, and occasionally answer a question or two that I threw out there, like:
“Do you know any of these guys (characters) in this book?”
