They were both winners of the NABE (North American Bookdealers Exchange) BEST BOOK Award, in the Children’s Interest Category, for the spring and fall 2013 Competitions, respectively.
His Third title, released in the fall of 2014, is The Dog And The Hen. It has an anti-bullying Theme and is a story of a little dog who is being picked on and bullied by the bigger dogs. Then, along comes a little hen who becomes his best friend. If they can look beyond the physique, and become friends, maybe we can too!
His fourth title, Dreams, released in the Fall of 2015, is a true travel log of a fun business trip he took with his 4-year-old son. It was a great bonding experience for both father and son. It teaches Parents that “Someone is Always there, Watching what you do…” So make your Actions Worthy, for those who Copy you”.
