Pangolin Petition

Here is a fast, easy and free way to help raise awareness of the pangolins' plight.

Kit Skogsbergh has created a petition on asking Disney to include a pangolin in an animated feature film.  Her hope is that such a character will educate and inspire people around the world and help save this endangered creature.

I've signed the petition and I hope you will take a few minutes to do the same. 

You can find it here.

St. Pete Art Show - Debra Mixon Holliday

I picked up a new addition to my collection from Debra today at the 26th Annual Cool Art Show at the Coliseum in St. Petersburg Florida. The photo doesn't do it justice. Debra is there all day tomorrow as well - if you are local it is worth the visit - if not, check out her website:

I can't wait to see what she creates for a King with no Crown!

Fifth Fable and Artist Announced

I am pleased to announce that my fifth fable, a King with no Crown - illustrated by artist Debra Mixon Holliday, will be released later this year. I was inspired to write this story after hearing a native American myth describing how vultures lost the feathers from their heads.

a King with no Crown is my version of the vulture’s origin story. I’ll be posting an excerpt from the book on my website soon and samples of the artwork as they are available.

In Support of Save Pangolins

I will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every print and electronic version of The Oracle Who Ate Ants to Save Pangolins ( in support of their mission.  Both the paperback and ebook versions have been updated to include a page dedicated to the Save Pangolins organization.

I hope you will visit their site to learn more about these wonderful creatures. You can follow Save Pangolins on Facebook or Twitter to stay informed of news regarding pangolins and the efforts to protect them.

New site launch

Site redesign!

It is long overdue, but at last my site has been redesigned. It is now fully responsive and can be viewed across desktops, tablets or smartphones. Along with the site redesign, a much larger excerpt from each of the books is available as a preview. The site launched today with content for all current titles and over the next few weeks I will be adding content for new titles to be released this year.

Have a look and drop me a line to let me know what you think!

Save Pangolins!


The African myth I drew on for "The Oracle Who Ate Ants" is an all too real fate for pangolins. They often end up in cook pots and they have too few caring human friends to rescue them.

Good news, you can help!  Check out all the information and the good work being done by the folks at
