The Children’s Writer


Are you are children’s writer? What are some of the frustrations you going through? We are a different kinda group. I can’t help but think that we’re a little gooky. We live in a world that is different from our adult world. So in a way we live in a fantasy, whether we are are writing about goslings or children with disabilities.

Some of us never smile and people crack up laughing when we say “I’m a children’s writer”, others of us wear huge tall African head ties or elaborate fabrics; still others of us wear costumes like my friend on, Glee.

Here’s one of the crazy things we are apt to do. Write a children’s book and then sell it for Free! Yes, I did! Here it is – “Tunde, the Little Nigerian Prince and the Soldier Ants” and you can contact me to get your downloadable e-book. It’s the second in the Tunde series of books for children ages 4-8. In this story Tunde gets into trouble with some ants when his mother sends him on an errand. They are not just any ants though, they are soldier ants and they bite hard! Check out where it is also downloadable. Thank you Karen for putting me out there!!!

The blizzard! Oh my!

Now ready to be ordered, my e-movie book:

TUNDE, THE LITTLE NIGERIAN PRINCE from me at this address.

‘Tunde is the son of a Nigerian King. He is a very

bright boy and catches the eye of an American

missionary. The missionary wants ‘Tunde to

attend sunday school, but his father, the King,

says “No”. The missionary is persistent and eventually

‘Tunde gets to go to sunday school and then

real school. He grows up to become a doctor and my dad.

Blue Jay Dance


The bright, extravagant dandy-looking blue jay danced around his find.  He found more knick knacks, colorful things from homes, yards and rubbish heaps that were shining, colorful and odd. He piled them up in the grass and delicately arranged them with his beak.  He rearranged them again. They were things that would interest a female blue jay. He looked up.  Checked his finds once more.

“She should love this” he thought and flew up to the lowest bough of a bush nearby and let out his mating cry.

Where was she?  He heard her at a distance and flew off, his arrangement of love abandoned.  He calls to her and she notices him but is not impressed.  He begins to gather new objects of interest and arranges them in the tall grass.  Once his second heap is perfectly arranged, he sees her fly off, “Oh my favorite berries” she squawks.

Not giving up for any reason he flies off after her.  Immediately she settles in a bush of berries, he starts gathering some more pretty objects in front of her.  He lets out his mating cry, “How do you like it,” he cries out.

Finally she pays attention to his third heap of Love. “It’s nice.  You did a good job.”

“I’ve got 2 others like it, if you’d like to judge the best.”

With a glint in his eye the gorgeous extravagant adorned blue jay, said “Come closer and look.”

She did.  And the mating began.

That’s how the Holy Spirit gets us.  He gathers some wonderful miracles.  A great job, beautiful wife, fun vacation.  Even a peaceful, helpful mother-in-law.  He keeps arranging beautiful situations that He hopes will cause us to praise Him. Somewhere in the Bible God says of us, “I will prosper him and then he will praise Me”.  Finally, when we stop long enough to realize it’s Him, He gets us to change position and come to His side and there!…the intimate relation with the Holy Spirit begins.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it.
