Introducing Kigra

I’m developing the seed of a new story. It will be my seventh children’s story and will hopefully become a book someday.

Its protagonist is named Kigra. He is a young chipmunk. When he was born, his parents combined the words “kind” and “grateful” to create his name so that every time he hears it he will hopefully remember to be kind and grateful.

I plan to post more details later.

With Love,
