New! Family fun activity books for road trips. My series, Car Detectives, gives families and children ages 10+ a break from screen time and a reason to look out the window on car trips. The whole family can participate in searching for the assigned objects. Each book has a different theme: Trucks, Signs, Animals, Colors, Cultures, Fences, People, Recreation, Imagination, Stores, and Gardens. Once the investigations are complete, the reader has a nice certificate of achievement for expertise in that field of study. The eleven books can be special ordered from me by email. I just finished adding a page just for them on this website.. Click on Car Detectives to find descriptions and how to order. They are also available at Whatcom Art Market and Bad Rock Books, Columbia Falls, MT. as well as visitor centers at Flathead Lake State Park and Lone Pine State Park.

In my "spare time", I thought it would be great to brush up on my junior high Spanish. This resulted in a translation of Midnight and Moonlight in Spanish, with a lot of help from Google Translator and my friends: Susana Alfonso, Mary Michaelson and Spanish professor at Western Washington University, Sean Dwyer. Dos Amigos, Una historia de la amistad was read at Bellingham Village Books at the first ever Spanish Open Mike on January 27, 2020. It is available online and by order though your favorite book store and at Whatcom Art Market and Allied Arts. Buy both English and Spanish versions to brush up on your Spanish!
