Here There Be Gnomes!

Six years in the making, Gnomes of the Cheese Forest and Other Poems is finally here!

This book is available to order online (in both hardcover and paperback) wherever fine bookish objects are sold. This includes all countries' versions of Amazon, plus Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Powell's Books, Indigo, and beyond.

(The gnomes are particularly excited about being available in Norway, home of their ancient mother tongue for cheese-making songs.)

If you enjoy the book, please consider posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Every little bit helps to reach more readers. The gnomes will bless you and thank you.

Jars full of gratitude to everyone who has stood by me and lent their steadfast support and encouragement!  It's been a long journey to get to this point, and I am forever grateful to finally be able to share all of this with you.

My Guest Artist

It's a TBT to the summer of 2014, almost mid-way through the many-year production of this book. My daughter Ariel was 7-years-old and went through a phase where she would always draw a butterfly in the right corner of all her drawings. This became the inspiration for one of the poems I wrote for the book, and Ariel got to contribute her own illustration as well.

Here is A Butterfly in the Right Corner, also narrated by Ariel (who is now 11), the subject of the final teaser trailer leading to book release.

The first physical proof is currently being shipped to me to ensure final approval. Stay tooned!

New Drawings are Happening

Time for an overdue update. I had some animation projects that kept me busy through the spring but in the last few weeks I've been getting back to the book and getting some new illustrations done.

Here's a few details.
