2021 News

Stick Bugs! and The Junk Town Blues were the first books I published several years ago now and I've learned much since then. Because I love these stories I've reworked them, although the core story remains the same. An updated version of Stick Bugs! is now available as of August 2020. Watch for release of an updated edition of The Junk Town Blues coming soon. The new edition will be renamed Junk Town!
