Welcome !!!  It's my dream in retirement to capture the imagination of kids with simple, fun books.  THERE'S A SNAKE DOWN THERE is my first book.  I believe readers will love Melissa -- who is the epitome of "girl power" -- and love the subtle complexity of  a little girl who's not afraid of challenges and not afraid to laugh at herself.  Please, enjoy !!!
