  1. I am so glad to have found your blog. ^_^ I will defintely be following your posts in the future. It has always been my dream to write a children's book one day and also to illustrate it but that dream, for me, seems so ever far away and fading just that little bit more each day. Anyway, a very nice blog which I have added to my blog roll.

    1. Thank-you. It is never too late to start. Grab a notebook and begin living your dream!

  2. I have to agree he's one talented artist. Wish I had that kind of creativity and could produce that kind of stuff.

    1. We have each been gifted with our own measure of creativity. What remains is what we do with our gifts. It seems from your blog that you put yours to good use. I hope to share your books with my readers soon. Thanks for your comments.

  3. Mr Madrid is new to me! Thanks for introducing him!

    1. Take a stroll through Barnes and Noble, and you'll see how prolific he is. Thanks for your comments.


Thank-you for taking time to share your thoughts!
