A Simpler Time and Way of Life

Rusty Bear is quite different from other characters in my books.  Many people say he’s their favorite of my characters and/or Rusty Bear and Thomas, Too is there favorite among my children’s books. I’ve often wondered what it was about him that stood out for people. A reader on one of my other blogs said she liked his simplicity. That may be the answer:  His simplicity. He evokes a simpler time and way of being. I like that.


With Love,
