I am particularly interested in working with teachers and homeschoolers who would like to share this manuscript with students and share student’s impressions and suggestions with me. Possibly, we could do this in a virtual visit.

Here’s another mock-up poem:



My Sweet Panda Bear

Panda bears are many people’s favorite bear!

MY SWEET PANDA BEAR learns about his bundle-of-joy beginnings and more, as he & his mom journey back to his birthplace. A peaceful book that makes a great bedtime story.

Critiqued comments:

  • Hi Alan, I love the gentle (sleepytime) tone of your manuscript.
  • I watched a program recently about pandas and how they let young die, and I was kind of sad to learn that.  Saw that you included that fact in there. Again, nice job!!!
  • I could just imagine Claudia Rueda illustrating this.

Safari Sam

After passing his final tests, Safari Sam, a wheelchair, is daydreaming about his new life transporting children at the zoo.  Another customer comes in and wants to buy him to carry around, of all things, a kangaroo.

Safari Sam does the only thing he can think to do. Will it be enough to make sure that he gets to cater to the children of the zoo of his dreams?

Billy Paints a New Day


A dark cloud followed Billy everywhere that he went. Lightning flashed. Rain fell on him. Well, that part is not true, but it sure felt like that to Billy.

Billy banged the stiff paint brush down on the ground. He knew could not paint his mom’s bird house with the brush. The stupid brush could not bend.

Everything was going great for his big sister. Evelyn was all happy and singing songs…

… but things were not going great for Billy.

His bad luck started this morning. When he pulled the toys out of his closet looking for Sky Chief. He found Sky Chief when he heard a CRAAAACK that made his tummy feel sick.
