I made my presentation at The Discovery Center! We had quite a crowd and a lot of fun. I ended the hour with a drawing lesson. I showed the kids how to make art from numbers! You can see in this photo how hard the front rows were working!
Thanks to Dr. Linda M. Organ Founder and Director of Education for the center and all the volunteers and the audience for making this such a wonderful experience! The Discovery Center is an awesome place! Be sure to visiti!

I’m excited to announce that THE LITTLE SHEPHERD’S CHRISTMAS is my twenty seventh picture book and my second original story. It will be released this fall, 2011, for the Christmas season. I hope you like it.
“Here is Reuel’s big chance to prove that he can tend sheep just as well as his older brothers. All he has to do is keep a watchful eye on his flock. But, distracted by his brothers’ teasing, he looks away just long enough for a little lamb to wander off. Following a frantic search, Reuel finds his missing charge, and finds himself in the midst of the biggest announcement ever made. The Christ Child has been born, and Reuel is one of the first chosen to hear the news! His shepherding misstep brings a blessing when he finds the baby who will one day become the Shepherd of Men.
This original tale of the first Christmas is illustrated with gorgeous paintings by Carol Heyer. Her art showcases the sweetness of the child shepherd and the reverence of the story.”
I'm a writer/illustrator of children's books and fantasy! Love my family, friends, goofy camels, and nutty dogs.
