My New Book is Available on Kindle

In case you didn’t know it, I am an author, I write stories.  Lucy is my main character in my first series.   She has exciting adventures that she relates to the girl she babysits, Karen.  The first book is 1-cover-2Lucy and The Bank Robbers.  At the top is my favorite picture from that book.  My Illustrator Makhenna Bigler got her perfect!!  What an amazing artist!  

I was so excited when I held the finished book in my hand for the first time.  What a rush!  Wow!  I wanted to share it with everyone.  

But wait there’s more!  More Lucy stories that is.  I have 9 stories in this series and I wanted to get them all out as fast as an illustrator could illustrate!  (Ha Ha that reminded me of the woodchuck)  

Problem:  My Illustrator finished the first book and left on an 18 month mission for the church!  I am so proud of her choice to go and teach people about the gospel of Jesus Christ.  She is awesome.  Problem?  I had no illustrator for my next books.  Even if I decided to wait for 18 months there is no guarantee that she would have time to do this when she gets back.

The search was on for another illustrator.  Then I found one,  I thought.   That one fell through.  Then I found another one, months went by, no pictures.  I started looking again.

Hurray!!  She did a fabulous job and I was able to get Lucy and The Bear up on Kindle last night!

See you there!  Oh and by the way the pictures (except the top) are links!
