WHO AM I ?

I tell people I am just an average person. I grew up in Iowa City, Iowa and since then lived in Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and now I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I love it here, NO SNOW! I have training as an engraver, jeweler and sign maker. I have my own sign business and specialize in government mandated ADA signs, you know the ones with the little bumps you see in all public restrooms and suites. I enjoy my work and sometimes wish
I had more time for writing.

The Backyard Adventures of Anna and Andy Hummingbird

I started writing the Anna and Andy series about seven years ago. I call the picture books "The Backyard Adventures of Anna and Andy Hummingbird." Anna and Andy are real and lived on my back patio for six years. I fell in love with them, and since my Grandchildren loved them too, I decided to write about them. I have a really great imagination, therefore it was not difficult to take some of the things I watched them doing and turn it into an adventure. "THE BEAST" in Book 2 is a perfect example. It is a 10 book series with, at this time, 1 thru 8 published. 9 and 10 will be completed in 2019. I have the the stories done, just need to finalize. Many of the stories are true and Book 1 starts out with Anna and Andy being hatched on a beautiful Spring day.

NO FORMAL TRAINING

My approach to writing was GO FOR IT! I knew I needed to make it easy to read, include colorful pictures and bold lettering. I turned myself into a 6 year old and jumped right in. It is truly fun, and once I had my grammar fine tuned, (did use some editors) I went for it. I have since written three more children's picture books through Createspace (Amazon) and a couple of fiction books for adults and even though I know I am not perfect, I do my best. We all know not everyone is perfect, except maybe Stephen King! I hope you enjoy reading them to your children, that is why they were written. The other books I have published outside of The Backyard Adventures of Anna and Andy Hummingbird will be featured in following pages.
