KOBI

 

Kobi was a young koala who thought he knew all the bush-smarts he needed. Very soon, he discovered that looking for the right gum tree was a dangerous business. He ended up scared and homeless-and he really, really, missed his mom. Kobi needed to learn more bush-smarts, and FAST, if he were to stay alive. . . Jumping Grasshoppers, how will poor Kobi manage? Read--and discover his survival secrets.

OSCAR

 

OSCAR is my first non-rhyming picture book. Oscar looks like all his mean and nasty relatives, but he IS different. Yet the bush critters simply judge him by his looks. He scares them, so they run away. No one wants to be his friend.


Then Oscar does something that makes the bushies stop and think about him. Could they have judged him wrongly?

Ruthie

Young Ruthie's mood changed overnight,
her smiles slunk off in gloom.
She wouldn't talk to Mom or Dad.
She refused to leave her room.

Her parents scolded, begged and coaxed,
but Ruthie paid no mind,
Her moods grew big and ugly -
like some Hippo's fat behind.

Fun verses about BIG Changes,
and how they can affect a child.

When Fall sends the message,

Daisy
and Barholomew Q.

A fun, fantasy adventure
for young teens.

Daisy suffered from procrastination-putting off until later, things she should do RIGHT NOW. Her mom nagged, but Daisy had not started the essay that was due tomorrow. Bartholomew Q. accepted no excuses. After muttering a magical mantra, he whisked Daisy off to find fabulous words for her essay.

Who knew that Oogledorks, Dynoroars, and wild adventure could be found where adjectives and verbs hung out-not to mention trees that talked. And Black Crow? He was pure evil. Will Daisy gather wonderful words? Will she survive being kidnapped? Absolutely. The Green Fishbait and his henchmen have it under control!

The Revenge of
Thelma Hill

When Frannie's dad was transferred to Oregon, she worried about going to a new school, and why she and her twin, Jeff, weren't really close. Frannie also dreamed about her missing Mom, and wondered why she had never returned to them. Ghosts, a long ago murder, and helping to trap a killer were not on her private "worry" list. Yet a late night visit from a scary apparition, trailing long gray veils and begging for Frannie's help, changed everything.

Frannie and the ghost, who was amazingly kind and friendly, put their heads together and planned revenge. A chilling encounter in the basement, and the appearance of the ghost's familiar, an arachnid of gargantuan size, persuaded twin Jeff to help them track and trap Thelma Hill's killer. Using the internet to trap the killer was dangerous. When the panicked and treacherous killer pays a midnight visit to their basement, the trap is sprung. Later, when the hoo-hah of the capture dies down,Thelma Hill finally brings news of Frannie's mom.

Down Under
Calling

This story is dear to my heart. It took me back to my Aussie roots. I hope it takes you there as well.


When a reluctant grandson in Oregon is pressured into writing to his grandma in Australia, wonderful things happen. Both have a need for love and reassurance as they deal with their everyday problems. Back and forth the letters go: Josh shares his daily problems, and Grandma Rose shares past memories that astonish her grandson and his friend Kelly.

The Xbox gathers dust, as the two friends find themselves bike riding and bird watching - and actually reading. Googling the weird and wonderful Aussie critters that come to Rose's garden becomes a fun hobby. Soon, Andy and Gradma Rose shrink the Pacific Ocean into a puddle they can easily ford.

Taconi and Claude - Double Trouble
Guardian Angel Publishing

I wrote "Taconi and Claude"
with reluctant readers in mind -
especially boys!

 

Set in the Aussie outback, on Coorparoo Cattle Station, Taconi, a young aboriginal boy, deals with what life throws at him, including a lot of advice from his chatty mate, a sulfur crested cockatoo named Claude.

It's not easy being an aboriginal boy in the Aussie outback of the mid 1900's. Taconi has nightmares about his upcoming "man" ceremony, and ancient Dreamtime Spirits stalk him with plans of their own. Tales from the Dreamtime, told around a celebration fire, offer tribal history. Stories from his dad offer a glimpse of life away from Coorparoo Station, + the chance to train as a Jackaroo.

 

He dodges a nasty Medicine Man who wants him gone, helps his dad become station "cookie," and ends up a hero of sorts, thanks to a crazed emu. All this, plus enough witchetty grubs, snake and yabbies for a bonzer soup. And when he Dreamtime spirits finally come for him, Claude is there to offer advice.

included.

Trial by Walkabout
Guardian Angel Publishing

A followup to Taconi and Claude.
Grandsons Andy and Bindi battle to
survive in the Aussie outback.

 

Drama, and sibling rivalry fuel this adventure, with a nasty threat thrown in for the kicker. Circumstances force longtime friends, Josh Howard and Bindi, into going Walkabout together.

The Aussie outback is harsh, hot, and unforgiving - if the wild dingoes don't get them, eating witchetty grubs might. The threat he made to his brother Tom nags at Josh, and lies between he and Bindi don't make things easier. If Josh ever wants to see Coorparoo Cattle Station Homestead again, he had better keep in good with Bindi.

Anger simmers when a crazed Medicine Man wants Josh dead, and later, he learns about the mysterous Dreamtime Spirits from a tribal elder. At night, by the camp fire, he mulls over why Tom hates him and what he can do about it.

 

** Glossary of Australian and Aboriginal words included.
