The First Book in the Milkweed Christmas Series

New!

A Milkweed Christmas

The Inn at Ivy Knoll

I'm proud and excited. It's here! The first in a series of Christmas Books about the animals at Milkweed. 

A beautifully illustrated and sweetly told account of the Milkweed animal community's observance of that most blessed holiday, Christmas. This year, the hares of the Inn at Ivy Knoll are hosting festivities on the big day, but that's just part of the story. There's much more! The animals, as they do every year, have filled the whole season with fond memories, special traditions, baking, celebration, and, more than anything else, love.

Make this lovely book part of your own special holiday tradition.

Recipes, stories, a Christmas letter, and more!

There's much more two come. Two more Milkweed Manor books are now in the works, and there will also be a new Christmas book late in 2021

The combination of the writing and illustrating is such a delightful exercise for the imagination. I just love it!

It started when I was sculpting little clay animal figurines. I was searching for a way to add value to them and thought of writing brief stories about them and including the stories with the figurines. Well, that never happened, but my mind kept coming back to those stories and that group of characters. One day it dawned on me that it could be a book. 

Six months later I decided to focus on that project and now, a year after that, the first book is done and two more are in the works.
