Fleeing war-torn London, 12-year-old Beatrice finds adventure way out West in lively Santa Fe. 2012 New Mexico-Arizona , Book Award for Historic Fiction. Mom's Choice Gold Award Winner, London Book Festival Honorable Mention, Nautilus Silver Book Award
True Brit was inspired by accounts of the thousands of British children sent to Canada, Australia, and the United States during World War II. A few landed in places like faraway New Mexico.
"This story is simple but engaging, as appealing for adults as it is children. The portrayal of Santa Fe in the 1940's is reminiscent of Richard Bradford's Red Sky at Morning, with its entrancing mix of people and cultures that existed in the city before the advent of urban sprawl."

I Have A Grandma Who ...
Grandmothers come in all sorts from chefs to divas but all share a passionate love for their grandchildren. Winner, Moonbeam Gold Medal
“I love this little book – perfect to give to a cool grandma, for her to read with her little one on her lap, or for her own pleasure. The Illustrations are wonderfully lively, and the text reminds that grandmas are often feisty and fun women who hike, paint, ride bikes (motorcycles!), study nature, fix things, dance, doctor, and delight with their very special expressions of love. This book celebrates diversity with drawings of grandmothers and grandchildren of every race. Buy this book and send it to her now – she’ll love it!”
“Kit Coyote: A Brave Pup is a beautifully illustrated story that will be treasured by child therapists, social workers, foster parents and others who help children heal and grow from family disruptions.”
