Hi everyone! We told you our Mama could paint, right? But did we tell you she can also write? Our Mama has loved writing since the day she was born. At least that's what Gramma says! Mama self-published four books. (She got tired of trying to submit them to publishers, and thought she'd give selling them herself a try... with not much luck. But still, her books are very interesting!)
Want to hear about the books our Mama has written?
Skye Blue is the one Mama worked the hardest on! It is a fictional book about a fourteen-year-old homeless girl named Skye, and her rocky relationship with her older brother Jimmy.
What Some Call Heaven is about a young girl who shows up in a homeless shelter, claiming to be an angel. It is one of our favorites because it has an angel in it! We love angels!
If you know any children with autism, Danny, Danny, Superstar is the book for you! Its a short "chapter novel" from the point of view of a little boy with autism. He attends a special education classroom for children on the autism spectrum. The story is about what happens when his class participates in the school's talent show.
If you have ADHD like our Mama does, or know anyone who does, Why I Am The Way I Am is a great book for you! This book explains, in simple terms, what it is like to have ADHD, why people with ADHD sometimes seem lazy and careless, and how people can help them without acting as their crutch.
If you spend your raffle ticket here and win, you can choose one of these four books! We will have it sent directly to your house, for your reading pleasure. Maybe if our Mama ever becomes a famous writer you can say you were one of the first people to read her work! On the list, look for "A Book by our mama."
