Fun Stuff & Selected Works
Any time young readers draw pictures, make videos, or whatever about one of my books, I will post their work here!
(Send your creations to email@example.com.)
Here are games and pictures of people/places/things found in my historical fiction, and A Scalp on the Moon (in progress).
I will be posting games, pix, and more about the Izzy Elves
Music was a huge part of my childhood, so I could not resist including lots of music in my stories. I will be posting recordings of some of these songs, dances, etc. here!
Owen and Alex, two naughty little boys, sneak downstairs before dawn on Christmas morning. They open one of their gifts and find Tizzy, one of Santa’s elves, who was packed inside by mistake. Can they get him home to the Pole 1) before the big Elf Celebration and 2) before their parents come downstairs!
Blizzy, Tizzy's "favorite lass", is the only elf who notices that Tizzy is missing on Christmas morning. When she starts questioning all her friends about when they saw him last, and where Tizzy could possibly be, however, they think she is just being a "worrywart". What Blizzy REALLY is, however, is very, very clever, and she just might figure out the mystery!
Dizzy has worked all year next to his friend, Tizzy, and heard all about his Great Adventure. The trouble is, Dizzy wants to have an adventure, too! He sneaks aboard Santa's sleigh, and finds all the adventure he's dreamed of with two little boys, Stuart and Drake. They share a wild joy ride and plenty of fun in this third "Izzy Elves" story.
It ended up being rejected because it was too funny for serious history, apparently. This pretty much convinced me to continue writing fiction instead, so I could leaven history with humor as much as I want.
Anyway, this has been languishing on my computer (or series of computers) for nearly 25 years. I'm getting it ready to publish it myself.
