Serpentine Stories

My children’s book,  “I’m Not Afraid of Snakes” is in print and available now at

The bright and shiny cover!

I wrote, illustrated, and published this story, inspired by the wild nature of my childhood in South Florida. The main character, Jenny, grows up in a place filled with stories, some scary, some sad, and some beautiful. Overcoming her fear of snakes, and learning some things are not as scary as they seem, gives her courage and appreciation for her life.

The vibrant images of snakes, alligators, and other critters can engage even the youngest children, while the caring relationship of Jenny and her father adds a layer of depth that makes “I’m Not Afraid of Snakes” an interesting read for both adults and children.
