OUR WORLD: FRANCE Is Released!

Happy Birthday to my Book Board illustrated by Margaux Carpentier and published
by Barefoot Books!
Both the illustrator and myself are French natives. From the beginning we shared
Barefoot Books’ vision and created an authentic picture of modern French life.
Throughout the book, we avoided stereotypes and focused on daily life in France
rather than landmarks to trigger young toddlers’ interest.
Around bold, vivid illustrations and short, engaging text little ones can follow Bébé
and Doudou from morning to night.
Endnotes offer simple explanations of the actions and the easy French words found
in the book.
From Kirkus Review:
“A day in the life of Bébé and Doudou in France. Characters are racially diverse.
Lovely illustrations accompany this quaint, toddler-friendly intro to French culture
and language.”

OUR WORLD: FRANCE is available in the USA, the UK and Canada and copies can be
ordered from the publisher, from Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and Target or of
course from your favorite bookshop.

My New Young Adult Novel Is Released!

 

My New Young Adult Novel All the Mountains We Can Climb Is Released!

ABOUT THE STORY

Since her father and sister died in a car crash, Noelle survives with the last words she told them seconds before the accident – words so unspeakable, she’s never shared them with anyone. A year later, still ashamed and guilty, she adheres to her mother’s rules, established after the tragedy.

Until she secretly applies to an East Coast college that she toured with her father and breaks her promise to study in California.

Now graduating from high school Noelle must tell her mother. As if she needed more challenges her French uncle’s sons arrive unexpectedly from Paris.

Charismatic Quentin witnessed one of the Paris’s terror attacks. Not without consequences. Quiet Manu cooks like a chef and reads Noelle so well, perhaps because he knows something about grief and guilt too.

Is Noelle’s last summer before college her chance to move on?

Set in the California’s Sierra Foothills and Yosemite National Park, populated with a cast of American and French characters, this is a story about the universality of loss, the weight of guilt versus the power of forgiveness, and the possibility of another chance.
