Being a self-published author comes with its own challenges, but any growing pains I may experience will be worth the joy of introducing children to our special character "Spot".

Thank you for taking an interest into the launch of our book, Spot: A Sea Pup's Survival Guide


  • Submitting book to libraries for review with the intent to host children's reading events in Summer 2017 (O.C. & L.A. county)
  • Donate books to local Marine/Nature learning centers for kids along the coast of Calif.
  • Connect & Market to Educators that are seeking eco-themed picture books

Dreams come true.

If you have other ideas to promote "Spot",

We would love to hear from you!
