THE BIG OL' BIKE
BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING IN LITTLE SPRINGS...
Everything about Oliver is small, from his footprint to his glasses—and a trio of bullies never let him forget it. When Oliver receives a special old bike for his birthday, he rides tall for the first time. But, the meanest bully in school doesn’t like that at all. Oliver finds himself challenged to a race. Now, he’ll have to be bigger than he ever imagined in order to prove heroes come in small packages too.
For ages 7 - 10.
Longer than average for this age range, The Big Ol' Bike is meant to be transitional between chapter books and middle grade novels. Themes of bullying, friendship, and finding confidence are explored within this story.

KEEP MOMMY SAFE
From the perspective of a child, KEEP MOMMY SAFE is a rhyming picture book that tells the tale of a young boy eagerly awaiting the return of his mommy from a long day of police work. Together with his daddy, they find a special way to cope with worry whenever she works late and can’t be home for bedtime hugs.
This book is written and illustrated by myself. It has been a labour of love. My hope is to teach kids about police officers, while also opening important opportunities for dialogue within first responder families... and all in a heartwarming way!
