Meet Flora Belle

flora-2_1024x768I’m pleased to introduce one of the co-stars of my latest book project for young children titled, Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon. Flora Belle is a carousel horse who loves what she does but sometimes gets bored and decides to go on an adventure. I wanted a water color look and feel for this story and selected Jack Wiens as the illustrator. I love his creations and he has been very easy to work with. I plan to release Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon in March 2017 to honor the birth of our first granddaughter who is schedule to be born at about that time.

With Love,
