Dear Friends,

"I am fortunate to have celebrated my 83rd birthday. It has been a wonderful thirty years of signing my books and meeting people across the United States.
Letters and comments from thousands of parents and grandparents over the years relating that my stories have taken their young loved ones on worthwhile vicarious journeys has been humbling and gratifying. 

I believed my writing career would end with eleven books but an idea regarding Scituate's famous lighthouse which is only a few hundred feet from our home in Massachusetts became the seed for The Tale of Scituate's Light Keeper's Daughter, which was published in 2013.

I will continue to sell books through this web site. Shipping will remain $4.95 for one book and $2.95 for second book. The shipping for four or more books will be free and include one CD.  When a particular title is sold out it will be removed from the web site."

Again a heartfelt thank you and best wishes to all - be well,
