Well, I suppose writing, producing, and narrating a children's book was the natural progression for me once I had my first child... as the Tik Tokers say, it's something that just makes sense.
Please find my first foray into children's writing here, Squirt the Squirrel and the Too-Many Acorns: a narrative arc which, as you might glean from the title and cover, is about a squirrel who hordes a few too many nuts for the winter. An arboreal theme heavily inspired by a honeymoon trip to CABÜ in January '22 (a very nice place to stay, might I add).
As this first book is a bit of a test run, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I'm still working out some of the finer details - like illustration for one. (On that note - any illustrators who might want to work with me on the next one, come or be sent my way. Just looking for the second coming of Quentin Blake, nothing much).
Please enjoy reading and/or listening to the adventures of Squirt.
And, as always, me, my pen, my voice and/or my home studio are always available for an exciting new adventure, too. So you know, call me.
Until next time, toodles!
