a new adventure

I have always had a passion for the written word. But it was not until my two wonderful little girls were born that I was more inspired to write. So I am writing a book to hopefully begin a series of books based on my children. The book is titled
*Aisley and Ala* When I Grow Up

and it is about a common argument my daughters have about what they are going to do when they grow up.

I have enlisted the help of a new friend and fantastic artist named Natascha Artworx to do the illustrations for the book. She has already completed a rough draft that looks amazing. Take a look at her other work at http://natascha-artworx.webs.com/

Be looking out for a sneak peak of the book in this blog. Let me know what you think, follow / subscribe the blog and tell your friends to visit the site as well.

We need your feedback and your help to get the word out! Thanks!

Pages 8-end!

Here are the last pages. Please let us know what you think of the book. Do you think it's marketable? Would you buy it to read to YOUR children? Can we improve the story? Your input is appreciated! Thanks! And again, Merry Christmas to all of you from our families to yours!

Page 8: Aisley knew she had Ala now, “When I grow up, I’m gonna be THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!”

Page 9: Aisley stood back, very proud of herself. With arms crossed, hips cocked and nose high, she expected Ala to be speechless in defeat.

But Ala wasn’t...she never, EVER was....

Page 10: “When I grow up, I’m gonna be a singing, teaching, mermaid, doctor who becomes the first singing, teaching, mermaid, doctor, President of the United States!”

Page 11 (back page): THE END


  1. cute! I hear my grandaugters' personalities coming through. Will the words on the pages be typed or handwritten? I had difficulty reading the handwriting. The book is adorable!

  2. hi BGO thanx for your comment.
    the words will be typed in the real/edited version. the drawings are only rough sketches and my storyboard.

  3. It looks good. I think it will be a hit. I would gladly read it to my class at school.
