The Year Santa Stubbed His Toe

The man in red really exists.

To all the people in the world that say Santa is just a myth, you are simply and completely wrong. Many tales have been told about the man in red. Some true—some as true as two-headed unicorns with wings living in the city of Atlantis.
This tale is true.

A year not so long ago, Santa was ready to take his yearly pilgrimage on the night before Christmas when disaster struck—he stubbed his toe. Not once, but twice—the second blow was against a gift-wrapped bowling ball that ballooned his toe to twice its size. He could not make his yearly run by himself; he needed help. So on that fateful night, he enlisted four of his best elves to help him make his deliveries around the world: Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, South America, and North America.
A journey that was not only a night of discovery for the elves on that Christmas Eve—but for Santa and the world as well … The Year Santa Stubbed his Toe.

Kitty Born at Sea: A Kitty Adventure

Kitty is born in Mexico on a Nordhavn 56 motorsailer. He travels with his Momma and Captain around the Gulf of Mexico and Florida and up the east coast to the Chesapeake Bay.

Kitty learns to protect his family and the big boat, Betty. Betty takes them over open sea to visit wonderful and famous locations. There are marinas full of people and natural inlets offering wildlife and protection.

Kitty loves the sea, but as he grows, he begins to dream for adventures on land. By accident, one day his dream comes true. Read how Kitty handles his decisions during this life changing adventure!

I wrote this book for Middle Graders, but I have received positive reviews from both younger children and adults. The book offers a great introduction to geography and history to younger ones. I also believe rambunctious Kitty brings the younger spirit out in older readers.

I enjoy writing about Kitty. This first Kitty book introduces us to Kitty’s earliest months and first adventures. The next Kitty Adventure, Night Lights, is in the making. It takes Kitty to the home place of Captain and Momma where only Kitty can save the river and all its the wildlife…

Let Kitty warm your heart and home!
