ABCats

is scheduled to launch September 1st 2021 but I couldn’t wait to give an early announcement! The picture book shows a variety of cats performing a variety of acts. I started out painting cats for fun and ended up writing a feline romp through the alphabet. Stay tuned for reviews as this book begins it’s journey.

Even though the launch date is not until fall, books may be preordered from the publisher, Doodle and Peck Publishing. Contact at www.doodleandpeck.com.
Go to the Gallery to see a few of the illustrations!

Bluejay

My, what a feisty fellow
That jay on the wire can be!
Cawing and causing a chaos,
Ruler of ruckus is he.

Boasting his might, daring to fight,
That jay frightens all from his tree.
Flapping and flashing his fury,
Trespassers furiously flee.

Perched at the top of his domain,
He puffs-up his feathery down.
“I am the king!” cries the blue-robed songbird.
“Surely you noticed my crown!”

End of 2020

Winds of time, come sweep away

The devastation of the day;

The isolation, grief and fear,

The sorrow shed in every tear.


Face to face, not screen to screen,

We long to be heard & hugged & seen.

Aching heart, desperate grope

Reach for life & peace & hope.
