Holly's written a new children's book called Adventures of D Mouse. The (delightful!) illustrations are by our good friend, Charissa B. Coyle.
Join Betty Redbreast as she shares stories of her good friend, D Mouse. From finding an unusual home to flying a kite, from making trouble to making a movie, D is a mouse with an appetite for friendship, excitement, and cheese, of course.When I was living in the Bay Area, there was a man who lived near the Golden Gate Park with the longest dredlocks I have ever seen. He carried them around on a staff. I didn't know him, but he was a bit of an icon in the Haight. It was rumored that a mouse lived in his hair.
D Mouse lives in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California.
Holly was telling this story to John when he said, "I bet that mouse had lots of adventures!"
And so the book was born.
Holly's finished the first draft of some Christmas adventures. Time to put my editor cap back on. (See, everyone, my undergraduate degree in English is NOT useless!) ;)
For more information:
Visit Amazon.com or CreateSpace.com to learn more or purchase the book.
Holly has a Facebook page, too, HERE. You can join it to get updates, including future books she writes.
