  • Everyone is Asleep But Me

    The starting point of this little story was a conversation with my daughter, Lily. Her son was no longer sleeping in a crib and was getting used to a junior bed. He went through a period of waking up very early, around 5:30 in the morning and coming to his parents’ bedroom.
    Needless to say, she was tired and annoyed with the whole situation.

    In one of our phone conversations, I thought a story approach might help. Most of the story is exactly the story I told her spontaneously over the phone. I wrote it down and sent it to her. Once I shared the story with friends, the pictures were inevitable.

    Everyone Is Asleep but Me is dedicated to my grandchildren—Erez, Maya, Ethan and Milan—who inspired the story. These days, they’re all great sleepers!

  • Something on the Inside: Starter Journal #1

    This journal is filled with photos of “God’s Canvas;” the sky. You may begin this journal at either end of the book. Each end includes an entry made by me to help start you off. You can begin with your own entry of a story, event, note or whatever is on your mind. I like to tell folks to put it in the atmosphere. My motto is “Write it, Read it, Remember it.”

    My ultimate goal is to raise funds from the royalties from the sale of 8,335 books in order to remodel my home to make it more wheelchair assessable. I sincerely thank you in advance for your purchase and support of this endeavor. May the sweet spirit of God bless and rest upon you always!
