Where do I start. Well my journey started with this one little book years ago. Feeling depressed and lonely about losing my stepson through a divorce. I decided to write a short little story for kids to tell them they did not always have to win, as long as they tried their best. In this day and age we all PUSH our kids to be number one and when they do not win they are heartbroken. In Ted and Raymond’s Adventure Series one the first short story is The Croak 500. Ted is a simple frog who loves trying new stuff. He fixes up a car to enter a race. His best friend Raymond ALWAYS has to be in first, so he enters too. Going around the track they are side by side. NEITHER frog wins first but they tie for 2nd place. They tried their hardest and still remained friends. This is what I want to teach our kids today!
A Shreveport residence, a mother, a wife, and a daughter. I have a wonderful husband who is the illustrator of the Ted and Raymond Series as well as my co-writer in Searching for the Unknown and Spirits of ChesterVille General Store. I started my love for writing at an early age of 13. I loved to write even if it didn't make sense. I started my writing in serious love poems and different things. Then in 2000 I wrote my first Ted and Raymond book that turned into a series, "The Croak 500". I didn't know that I would have a series until two years ago. As I researched for my husband to do voiceover work I came across some awesome people and then my book showed up. With NO animation or characters my husband made the book come alive. Then I was inspired to do more and more stories. And well.... Here I am. Inspiring kids to be better! www.thecroak500.com
