Meaningful Christmas Story – “The Silver Tree”

For those of you with children who would like to read a Christmas story that I have written you can go to

Click on story library, and then click on the heading Parenting Stories.

My story “The Silver Tree” can be read by 6 to 9 year old.  It tells of two sisters, one in particular, who doesn’t realize the true meaning of Christmas.

This story was based loosely on my childhood but instead of a silver Christmas tree our tree was sprayed painted white.

Hope you enjoy it.

Carla the Little Red Hen – Story of the Week

My story “Carla the Little Red Hen” has been chosen as the Story of the Week.

Go to and select the download for Kindle, etc for only 99 cents or less. The link is provided in the right-hand column.

Although, having a pet chicken is somewhat unusual, I feel children will enjoy the read.  This delightful story is written for 5 to 7 year olds.

I would be most interested in your comments after you have read it.
