Coming Soon To A Book Near You
Meet my new friend Jeannie Ann. She is the star of my next book which is about to go to print, Jeannie Ann’s Grandma Has Breast Cancer. Seeing a need for breast cancer information when someone close to a child is diagnosed became the motivation for me to create this story in a children’s book. How do I tell my child or children about breast cancer? Where do I go to find help in doing this in the right way? How do I involve my child in my journey?
Jeannie Ann’s Grandma Has Breast Cancer by Diane Davies and illustrated by C.A. Nobens, has the answers for you to these difficult questions. Grandma’s breast cancer journey is told through the voice of six year old Jeannie Ann who with the help of her family and Grandma learns to face the fears, emotions and needs that she is experiencing. Cancer, tumor, mastectomy, chemotherapy, pain, love, death, prayers are all a part of the story that Jeannie Ann shares with us. Written with honesty, love and understanding, Jeannie Ann’s Grandma has Breast Cancer, is sure to impact the family of a cancer patient positively. C.A. Nobens caught the simple yet powerful message of Jeannie Ann and helped me to tell the story through her beautiful and perceptive illustrations. Available late December 2018 or early January 2019.
This little guy stars in Book 2 Life in the Neck Squirrel Trouble. You guessed it! His name is Eli. He and his Dad have built a log fort in the neck. From scratch you might say. They started by cutting down the trees, skinning the bark – the whole ball of wax to build a log cabin. Eli knows all of the terminology, just ask him. Before the chinking was finished, guests arrived and moved in preparing for the winter. The guests were a red squirrel family with three little ones, Chatter, Whistle and Squeak. As you can imagine they gave Eli a run for his money creating havoc, destruction, and frustration for our little hero. Book 2 Life in the Neck Squirrel Trouble will be available in the summer of 2019.
