Book of short stories for children. Funny stories, yet they teach a lesson through the eyes of some very interesting animals.

Finalist for 2006 EPPIE award!

My publisher is no longer in business. While I'm looking for another, I am selling Oliver's Castle at a discounted price!



 Excerpt from Oliver's Castle--

Oliver savored the last bit of food before going to bed. The house was warm and quiet, his belly full. He took a quick bath, and then snuggled in for his nap. Only minutes later, a noise awakened Oliver. He listened. He waited quietly. Scratch, scratch. Without moving, without making a sound, he looked around, but saw nothing. Must have been a dream, he thought, and closed his eyes. Scratch…scratch, scratch, scratch. There, he heard it again. It was not a dream. He sensed he was not alone. An intruder was in the house! Oliver looked around without moving. Then, out of the corner of his eye, he saw a blur run into the kitchen. Now was his chance, Oliver made his move. He climbed out of bed and ran to the doorway. When he peeped around the corner into the kitchen, he saw the figure standing at the refrigerator. Waiting for the right moment, he felt his heartbeat racing in his chest from anticipation. Oliver took a deep breath and lunged on his intruder. Without much of a struggle, he took his prisoner captive. His much-needed nap would have to wait; he was too excited to sleep. He turned as he heard footsteps behind him. Oliver still had his prisoner tight in his grasp. “Sir Oliver! My goodness! What is that you have?” the plump, gray-haired woman said as she stroked her cat’s sleek gray coat. “Well, I see you have rid the castle of yet another pesky mouse. You are quite the knight and make me a very happy queen.”
