The Signing at THE MUSEUM OF VENTURA COUNTY was wonderful. I had a great time! JANNETTE JAUREGUI a reporter for the VENTURA COUNTY STAR did some great interviews on each author and some fun photos too. The story appeared in today's paper and started out with my "famous" Robin Hood story. Click on the VC Star logo below and it will take you to the complete article with photos!
THE MUSEUM OF VENTURA COUNTY will host a special free story time and book signing from 2 to 4 p.m. Sun., Dec. 18 at the museum, 100 E. Main St. in downtown Ventura.

Thanks to Connie Halperin and everyone at Mrs. Figs' Bookworm in Camarillo, I had the most spectacular book launch ever! I had such an amazing time, got to see some old friends, meet new ones and sign lots of books!, close to two-hundred and still counting!!
I was excited and honored to see this new article by ANN CANNON in the THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE: Ann Cannon: A Holiday Tradtition Worth Reading About. She picked HUMPHREY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS as one of her five favorite books!! Here is the paragraph that mentions her favorites!
"Over the years, a few clear personal favorites have emerged: The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden, A Letter to Santa Claus by Rose Impey and Sue Porter, Wombat Divine by Mem Fox, The Little Fir Tree by Margaret Wise Brown and HUMPHREY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS by Carol Heyer."
I also wanted to mention when HUMPHREY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS was originally launched ANN CANNON picked it as one of the new books she would add to her ever growing collection! Of course here's my favorite line from the article! :0)
"And I'm not sure I can't resist the divinely silly "Humphrey's First Christmas" by Carol Heyer — a story about a camel's journey to the stable and the surprise he finds waiting there.
I'm a writer/illustrator of children's books and fantasy! Love my family, friends, goofy camels, and nutty dogs.
