February 2020 Event

Paragould Primary School will be hosting Winter Reading Night 2020 on Thursday, February 27, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Along with cookies and hot cocoa, children will be treated to story time. I’ll be participating as a guest reader, and I’ll be sharing my new picture book, A Vegetable Garden is Not for Cows. I hope to see you there.



Meet Annabelle

My first picture book, A Vegetable Garden is Not for Cows, is coming soon. This book is about a curious cow named Annabelle and is for children aged 3 - 6 years. Little ones will delight in the colorful art by illustrator Tiffany Stafford. Because I grew up on a dairy farm, this book has personal significance to me. It will be released by Dreaming Big Publications in the near future. For now, here's a peek at the cover.

Farmer Ben’s cows have everything they need. They have a shade tree for sunny days, a barn for rainy days, and a fence to keep them safe. They also have all the tasty, green grass they want to eat. But one of the cows has been eating the vegetables in Farmer Ben’s garden. How will he find out which one? Annabelle knows someone needs to step up and be honest.

Watch for A Vegetable Garden is Not for Cows online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or ask for it at your favorite local bookstore.
