My Children’s Book

Two Cats, a Mermaid and the Disappearing Moon  features my beloved cats, Topper, Lexington and Bella.  My obsession with the moon, my cats, canyon dwelling creatures, and Laguna Beach’s scenic beauty sparked a story that takes the reader from the majestic canyons to calming coves of Laguna Beach as they go on a journey with Topper and Lexington to find the full moon that goes missing from the sky.

Two Cats, a Mermaid and the Disappearing Moon showcases the beauty, wonder and magic of nature in its animals, places and in a particular lunar phenomenon. The creatures in the story were inspired by wildlife I’ve encountered in Laguna Beach, including barn owls that lived in the palm tree in my yard and still come to visit. Mermaids have intrigued me since childhood and although I can’t say I’ve seen one, who knows what magical creatures come to life under the light of a full moon…

Two Cats, a Mermaid and The Disappearing Moonpublished by FriesenPress, is a lavishly illustrated chapter book for young readers of approximately 5 to 8 years, and a delightful bedtime story for younger kiddos. And for adults–go pour a cup of tea or glass of wine and tap into your inner child as you get lost in the gorgeous illustrations and magical story!
