This page contains a synopsis of each of my ongoing book
projects for children and YA. If you would like to see a complete proposal with
samples, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
"Be Careful What You Wish"
An early chapter book. The protagonist learns a valuable lesson in obedience, and in secrets
from the past.
"Billy and Nikki: Cat Tales"
Each Billy and Nikki story addresses a very real situation that all children face, including
introduction of a new child in the family, sibling rivalry, fear issues, visits to the doctor, and so
on. Presented in a friendly and non-confronting manner, each story leads the reader through the
situation to a positive outcome. Each book can be used as a read-aloud, read-along, or read-alone, and would appeal to children ages 3-7.
"Famous Children in the Bible"
Each and every child is special to God, and He has a plan for each one. Sometimes God
will show us a little of that plan, just as He revealed to Abraham and Sarah that their seed would
be as numerous as the stars. Just as He showed Mary that her son, Jesus, would save people from
their sin. Oftentimes, however, we have no idea which child will grow up to be a president, a
preacher, or a teacher. But we are each important to the plan of God, and we should teach our

"Famous Children in the Bible" is written as a read-aloud for young children, a read-
along as their reading skills improve, and a read-alone when able. Each story is taken from
Scripture, and introduces a character who later grows up to do wonderful things for God.
Included are Moses, Miriam, David, Samson, the boy with the loaves and fishes, and Jesus, ten
children in total.
"Life Lessons for God's Kids"
Children need positive role models to look up to, and to structure their behavior and
actions by. Christian parents desire that their child's role model display Godly attributes.
Where better to look for those role models than in the Bible? The purpose of this book is to
introduce children to Biblical role models, using a creative non-fiction approach, to bring these
characters to life, and to portray positive behavior without being preachy or moralistic.
"Where is My Brother Gone?"
First in a series A young boy learns hard lessons when his brother dies, and also learns about the love and grace
Subsequent books will include other life issues such as death of a parent; death of a grandparent;
serious illness; and will incorporate basic Christian doctrine of heaven, salvation, and
forgiveness of sins.
