#1 New Release & Amazon Best Seller, Mom’s Choice Gold Award Winner, Writers League of Texas Discovery Prize Winner for 2017

Have you ever wondered how that first caterpillar achieved the impossible dream of soaring with wings through the sky? Or how that first Tadpole hopped up on the bank of a stream to sing?

DREAM BIG takes readers back to the wilds of East Africa where life began and shows how these different animals achieve their dreams. Inspired by Joseph Campbell’s book, A Hero With A Thousand Faces, each animal goes on their own heroic quest. They meet a moody Baboon along the way who doesn’t believe their dreams can come true. But when he sees Caterpillar turn into a winged Butterfly, Tadpole into dancing Frog, he discovers A Powerful Secret—SHHH—that exists between the stars and the animals once they truly believe in themselves and their dreams. You can enjoy The—SHHH—Secret too once you read the book!

Hint:  To figure out Their Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M, the name the animals give their marvelous, miraculous, wished upon star who “WHOOSHES” down from the heavens when invited by their SMILE to “WHAM” ignite through their BELIEF the gift of stardust in their hearts!

Book 2: Love Big –

#1 New Release & Amazon Best Seller and Mom’s Choice Gold Award Winner

Generations later in the wilds of East Africa, life was more complicated with starving animals who were hungry and mean. Most had stopped believing in themselves and their dreams. The First Secret—SHHH—their ancestors had discovered only worked for the few who could still believe until this moody Baboon discovered another powerful Secret while watching Rhinoceros, Hare, and Lion choose to help each other on their heroic quests. In turn, Baboon and his new friends help another unlikely hero save the savannah.

Hint: To figure out The New—SHHH—Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M again. This time in the marvelous, miraculous star-dust that surrounds them, who “WHOOSHES” into their lives when invited by their shared SMILES to “WHAM” ignite the gift of stardust in all their hearts from their BELIEF in each other.
