Severing Ties with Tate Publishing


I don’t know if any of you have heard but Tate Publishing has officially closed their doors as of January 17th, 2017 after 17 years of business. Read more about the closing here. ¬†While this was a shock and a disappointment to not only myself but all of the authors, musicians, illustrators and employees of Tate Publishing at this time. However we are a hardy stock and will persevere in the face of this setback.

Moving Forward.

I have been unhappy with Tate Publishing for a while so, I have in fact been sending manuscripts to literary agents across the country in hopes to be represented by one of them and go the traditional publishing house route.

I plan on to keep writing and to get my books republished again somewhere.

Thank you all for your support during this transition time.



Tid bits and fun

I am excited to finally have some new bookmarks. I ordered them 2 weeks ago and they arrived today. I went with this design because I wanted something that had all 3 of my books on it and I am planning on attending several preschool classes with our children’s librarian next month and I wanted something to hand out to all of the kids.

I will have these available at the book signing in St. Clairsville Ohio at the Dairy Queen on February 6th from 1-3 pm.









Until Next Time,
