Grandpa Steve lived on a big farm. It was way out in the country, and a much farther distance than little Travis, Grandpa Steve's grandson, could ride on his bicycle. It was located on a large piece of property which lay past the convent, across the railroad tracks, and on the other side of the highway which carried everyone from the big city to the little town in which Travis lived.

And so begins our story. Who would guess that Grandpa Steve, whom little Travis so loved to visit, would come to change and help the whole world? Who would guess as well that Grammie Marnie, the long- suffering wife of Grandpa Steve was not the only other inhabitant of this farm? There was as well, co-existing on this farm, a 'mysterious chicken' embodying the presence of mystery, as well as other unseen intangible presences.

What were these presences? There was the unshakeable belief of Grammie Marnie and her daughter in the benign presence of Mother Mary who stood in her shrine down the road. There was, too, the belief in the presence of the mysterious chicken by Grandpa Steve and his grandson, Travis. And, there was the presence of perseverance in Grandpa Steve as he 'tinkered with all his test tubes.'

What would be the fruit of all these intangible yet oh so important presences? Could the mysterious chicken be the symbol for something important to the family who would come to witness a strange, unusual and wonderful event on this farm?

What a complex world we live in!
And, as we all know, it grows increasingly more complex with each day. In some ways this is good, in others perplexing.

Surely it must be especially perplexing for the young, who must make sense of it all, with ever increasing agility. Will they be able to increase in this agility with each generation, and keep pace with our world? One wonders. But one must also have hope, and try to provide support and tools which may be of help to them.

Hope, trust, magic, love- we need these in abundance! No matter our age in years, we need these qualities in us and in all of our relationships.

It is my prayer that this little story will help you, and help readers of all ages to pull these qualities up from the deep well that is inside each of us. May you utilize and depend on these qualities as the great mitigators, healers, and joy-bringers that they are. They are all of these indeed, even in the midst of growing pains of all sorts, troubled times, and difficulties in our relationships.

Each night, Uncle Charlie the Field Mouse
tells the little field mice who are yet too young
to work in the fields of the wonderful corn concerts
and the beautiful Song of the Corn,

as they sit by Aunt Beatrice Mouse's fireside before bedtime. He sings in his beautiful Irish Tenor Voice, the Song that Autumn Corn sings to the grown mice after their day of gathering the scraps from the farmer's field.

Then one day, rumors begin to circulate
of a big change coming to the farm. Ominous whisperings frighten Aunt Beatrice and Uncle Charlie. They try to keep talk of something new called a strip-mall, and the possible sale of the farm from the ears of the little mice.

Could the beautiful way of life the mice an all on the farm have known and loved be coming to an end?

What is to become of them all?
The animals gather together and cooperate like never before, and try to decide what to do, as the familiar singing of the corn fills the autumn air.

Carrot Top and Big Red
A story for Children and Youths about the qualities in us that really matter!

Available soon in:
Downloadable Book and CD Format

When a young boy, who has always been raised to believe he is special and very good receives some teasing at school over his red hair,
it is an opportunity for learning some tough lessons about the nature of the world.

Through learning to trust wisdom from his mother and father, and embracing his own fortitude, our young protagonist, Eddie, comes to truly understand the words of his beloved grandmother, who always said, 'The Lord works in mysterious ways!"
In the past, he hadn't really understood what she meant when she said this (and she said it quite often!) But now, when he thinks about his trouble with the boys at school who call him "Carrot-Top," and how a special Show and Tell and a beloved, big red dog have helped him to make friends, he thinks maybe he understands just a little of what his grandmother meant.

Our world is increasingly diverse, and increasingly in need of love and tolerance. If we could only see what a blessing it is that we are all different, have different beliefs, and come from different cultures, places and life paths. The Mother Duck and the Mayor who Understood Love is a wonderful little story which illustrates this point in a delightful, sensible way. Oh, if we all had the sense of our mother duck! She is an inspiration to us all. Perhaps there is an "inner mother duck" and gifted, conciliatory mayor within all of us just waiting to come out and bless and heal our world.

Sometimes children need a little help making the adjustment when someone they love very much, such as a grandparent, goes through life changes...

This wonderful story shows
how love, concern, flexibility, patience, and the spontaneity of children help a grandfather to deal with his progression of care.

Why is this such a wonderful story for children?
The very crux of this tale is that it is the faith, innocence and energy of youth that ultimately persuades our "grumpy grandpa" to "jump back into life," after a bit of a rocky start in a new life at a nursing home.

Grandparents will enjoy explaining
to their grandchildren

that the songs in the accompanying singalong were the songs they used to sing with their own parents when they were children.

This story is delightful, and the singalong is great fun!
