My new book, and first picture book, is out!

A family adopts a little cat. But is he the sweet, innocent kitty he pretends to be?

This cat has a secret. He’s hungry. And his eye is on the moon.

Then on the night of the full moon so round,
what I saw shocked me so, I could not make a sound.

This is a picture book for all ages, roughly 3–8 yrs. Little ones 3+ will enjoy the cat images, while older kids will appreciate the humor and storyline.

After the story, there is a short tutorial on the phases of the moon.

Illustrated by my friend and debut illustrator Niem Tran, this spooky book is published by Handersen Publishing.

Signed copies are available from my website:

Also available from Amazon.
