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.

In a beautiful kingdom by the sea, lived a people to whom music and the arts were the most important thing in the land...
Everything beautiful in their world! Oh, they were very happy!

All was blessed indeed, until one day...
the evil sorcerer who lived in the craggy depths, in the damp dark cave at the bottom of the cliff at the edge of the kingdom, finally had enough of all the music and laughter in this musical kingdom.

For, if the truth be told...
the music he heard coming from the kingdom made his tummy ache.

"Someday, someday," he would cry...
"I'll make their instrument strings go plunk and break!"

"I'll turn their melodious voices to gravely rasps!" he would seethe.

"But how to do it?" the old sorcerer mused.

Will the sorcerer be successful?... Or will music "Save the Day?"

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

Available Now 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.

The Maiden Who Was Too Sensitive
for this World
A Story for Youths, Young Adults and Adults
in which a Young Maiden Goes out into the World
and finds Inner Strength, Divine Guidance,
Reconciliation and Transformation

Available Now in:
Downloadable Book and CD Format
Available soon in:
Downloadable Video Format

The Maiden who was too Sensitive for this World has something of the fable in it, but it is a story for our times, and has a great deal to say to people of our day, young or old. Youths and young adults will enjoy the "going out into the world" aspect of the story, and be excited by the possibilities for "anything is possible" which it represents. Adults will enjoy being transported back to youth, when life just begins and the journey is new. All will thrill to the vision of a world which is changed for the better by the young maiden, the events she encounters, her openness to her inner self and the Divine, and the courageous, life-enhancing decisions she makes, based upon guidance from within.

This guidance comes to her in the form of three guardian spirits: that of her earthly father, her guardian angel, and the spirit of God. Oh, if we all could all be so trusting, open and courageous as our young maiden as regards guidance from within… Well, perhaps we can! We are never to young or to old to learn, grow, and be guided. We are never too old to transform our lives, relationships or world, as this delightful story proves.

Please, sit down in a comfortable chair, relax, open your mind and heart, and prepare to experience a world of youth, optimism, personal and planetary transformation in this delightful tale!

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.
