I was recently contacted by  a dear friend of mine who told me the story of a girl who has been having nightmares. All I know is that this brave little girl was having some problems with nightmares  and my friend was helping her with those. My friend as a way [...]

Just One More Book & We can rebuild her

In March of 2010 I contacted the website Just One More Book, created by Andrea Ross & Mark Blevis, since I had just written my first children’s book and I eagerly wanted to know if they’d be interested in reading it.

The Little Lady dressed in White talks to the Boy and Red Balloon Writer

It is a great feeling when one least expects it , one is informed that what one has done has affected someone else in a positive way.

You Tube Video for World Autism Awareness Day

I wanted just to say there that it is so important to care, even if it means to give someone a hug, a kiss, give them something of value or give something away.  I set out from the beginning to help, with all I could, two charities that I felt strongly about.  So do your [...]

How Does the Red Balloon Connect us Humans Together?

I find it amazing that things align in the right place and people cross paths and ideas resonate. I was working on the next video for release to give a little more insight into the book but I was hitting a wall about music and all of a sudden I run into a site by [...]

Why I kept the Boy and Red Balloon illustrations super simple

I got some excellent feedback last weekend about the book last weekend. I love Constructive criticism. One question that came up was this:
