My picture book, Blue Ribbon Dad was published by Abrams in 2011. Margie Moore is the illustrator. It is also an e-book on Reading Rainbow's ipad app and was read aloud by LeVar Burton to over 1 million viewers. You can find the link on Youtube.  I am the co-author of the picture book, Noises at Night (published by Abrams 2005, Bruce Whatley illustrator, Susan Lubner co-author). Noises at Night is also a Reading Rainbow e-book now on their ipad app. Noises at Night is also sold overseas by Scholastic to book clubs in Australia, India, and Hong Kong as part of the Scholastic Book Club.
