The Wagon is the first book in the series. All of my books are available in both Soft Cover and Hard Cover. The book format is 8.5 x 11.
The Special Kids of Sharon are real live puppy-dogs who are next door neighbors and live on a very quiet street called Sharon. Yes, their backyards really do adjoin a cornfield and a farm.
All three kids, needless to say, are our own Special Kids, very much loved and the inspiration for the books.
All the illustration in my books are created by me, using actual pictures of the kids and surrounding countryside. I never tire of writing, painting or doing illustration of animals but the Special Kids are my favorite bunch. Especially my "Abbey" She died from hemolyic anemia before the books were published. She is deeply missed but never gone. Her spirit is always with us. Abbey gave joy and love to whomever she met but especially her mom. She will always live in my heart and mind. The books are dedicated to her. You will find a truly touching story in the "Abbey and Jakey Book". The story how Jakey and I found each other with the help we know of Abbey.
