orples

Olivia (an intelligent little orange) is about to be picked from her tree.   Now, her life is really getting ready to change. What am I talking about? Why “orples”, of course.  Jack, an only child, and Olivia are about to become unlikely friends as events unfold in this new book.  “How Orples Came To Be” (63 color illustrated pages) begins the series of orples adventures.  My publishers list it as a children’s book, but I think it is appropriate for anyone 8 – 80. There are lots of subtle little lessons hidden between the lines that apply to us all dealing with friendship, loneliness, loyalty, and that nagging little battle we all sometimes experience when right and wrong are not easily separated.  The story description is a little different on Amazon’s site and by my publisher.  Both summaries are correct.  The alternate version focuses more on…

orples

Please let me introduce book 2 of the orples series, now available through Amazon.com. I’ve been working on this book for awhile now and finally have the softcover version self-published. The e-book version is still in the works, but should be available shortly for anyone that is interested. Please feel free to click on the link, if more no other reason than to help me up my numbers in the search engines on Amazon. It will be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, here is a peek into my newest book “The Orples Make A Tree Home.

My first book “How Orples Came To Be” was published through Strategic Publishing and tells the story, as the title suggests, how orples transformed from oranges into little orange-people. It focuses on loneliness, friendship, belief in one’s dreams, and touches on the bond between the importance of the parent and…
