Help me with my books about Fred the friendly snake….please

Some know that I have written 5 books for children about Fred the friendly snake, beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Lemaire from Canada. They have won some awards, are popular locally, and with friends and family. In an attempt to broaden our scope, I have teamed up with Bublish (https://www.bublish.com/) a local company that publishes and promotes. They think it is important to have lots of reviews on Amazon. If you are interested, please consider going to the books on Amazon.com, and adding a review. Look up the relevant book, click on “customer reviews” and you will see where you can add yours. You do not have to buy the books to do so.  (Five stars are welcome!)

Thanks much

“Come from away”. A NYC musical about 9/11 in Newfoundland.

Last night we went to see “Come from away” on Broadway, the show about the 7000 people who descended on Gander, Newfoundland when 38 planes were diverted on 9/11. It was really great show. They managed to turn a scary experience into a heart-warming musical. Terrific!            Some will recall thatContinue Reading

Down English Memory lanes
