Babies of Two Now in Labor


Babies of Two!  

Yes, it’s true, I’m a grandmother to twins.  Can you imagine?  Well, I did!  After fifteen years I’ve written my 17th picture book  http://wp.me/p41md8-2tk.   Babies of Two is told from the perspective of adorable baby twins shortly before birth.  What do they see?  What do they do?  So much fun for me and you!

Take a new peek to read lyrical lines while delighting in waves of wonder illustrated by the talented Alisa Belzil.  A book from our hearts to yours filled with love and giggles, tears and wiggles.  For children and generations to share forevermore.

Babies of Two is available for pre-adoption on Kindle at Amazon.com with a due date of November 1st.   A mirror image  printed in hard cover will be swaddled around the first of December.

One + One = Two


Well, today’s the day.  An official announcement from me.  Oh sure, I’ve left clues.  A few l.e.t.t.e.r.s here or a couple of words there.  But, never an official announcement.  Not from me.  Not here…until today.

After 15 years, yes fifteen I’ve taken the plunge.  I’m proud to let my WordPress family know that I’ve written a new children’s picture book entitled, Babies of Two.

So how did this all come to be?  Many months ago during the whisper of a winter’s chill, words tapped upon my computer keys.  A story to be.  After printing pages out, I read them aloud to my wee granddaughter who giggled with glee.  “Again, Grandma, again,” she shouted.  Grabbing the sleeve of my arm, she added, “Let me see, let me see!”  Alas, no pictures from me…..

Within days, I came across a WordPress blog where an enchanting illustration captured my attention.  Posted by the talented artist Alisa Belzil, was a delightful illustration of a precocious little girl dressed in a yellow raincoat splish-splashing in puddles of mud.  Dancing above her head were droplets of rain cheerfully painted in water-color blue. Sadly, the child had no words to say….

From there fate stepped in to begin my journey with Alisa.  1+1=2.  Could this really be true?  What should I do?  As they say, ‘the rest is history.’  Writing is a great love of mine that plopped into my lap many moons ago.  Still, I haven’t published a book in over twenty years.  At the same time, Alisa had never designed or illustrated a book before Babies of Two.  Is it fair to say, we both had a lot to learn?

Alisa is an amazing artist, designer and illustrator.  Most of which I knew from the start, but there was something else hidden beyond her sketch pad and pots of paint.   A common bond between the two of us.  Month after month we focused our passion on the process with one goal in mind, to make our book the very best it could possibly be.  After that, our golden pot at the end of the rainbow was to win the hearts of children and caregivers through heart and humor with sprinkles of love throughout every page.

In the beginning of this project I hoped for pictures to go with words.  At the end, I have a trusted friend.  Yes, I still have trouble unzipping files.  But, I’ve always been very good at math.  1+1=2!

Babies of Two will soon have a special delivery.  They’re available for pre-adoption at Amazon.com, with a due date of November 1st.    Amazon.com/author/2babiesauthor
