In the past couple of years, I’ve had the opportunity to publish 2 children’s books. The first one is for newborns, toddlers, and/or young readers. It’s called Big and Small, God Made Them All. My second book is great for an older child, but still captures the imagination of toddlers. It’s called The Brave Bamboo. They’re both available on Amazon.com here.

In the summer of 2015, I threw caution to the wind and began working on an idea for my first book. It was one of those ideas you sit on for a while, but are keeping in the back of your mind, know what I mean?
So, how did the idea come about? I guess I took a page right out of a Nashville songwriters handbook because the title of the book came to me out of the blue, much like song lyrics are hastily jotted down on a restaurant napkin. I thought the title might be good for something, but didn’t know much more about how or what because 1. I’ve never written a book, and 2. I was busy with the activities of work and living. But I believed, and still believe, Big and Small, God Made Them All has a place in this world, even as simple as the story may be.
Keith Urban once referred to his songs as his babies and now I know what he means. This book is something I’ve seen go from a random idea to an actual book I can hold in my hands and the entire process has connected me to the book on a deep level. I want it to be accepted, to help make people smile, to have children learn about a big God that is responsible for so much goodness we see every day, even in small things that might get overlooked sometimes.
