A Little About Us
While sitting outside in our backyard, Cathy and I enjoyed watching the birds, waiting for their turns at the bird feeder. The scene reminded us of a busy runway at an airport, with planes waiting to take off or land. The birds were very clever and fun to watch, especially when the smaller birds would kick seed to the ground for the larger birds that were too big to land on the bird feeder. It appeared the birds had some structure and displayed very effective teamwork. We wondered what the birds might be thinking during their travels and we thought it would be interesting to write a book about a flock of birds flying south for the winter. We began writing Robby's Quest for Seed in 2010.
Publishing our first book was only a dream. The finished manuscript sat on our computer hard drive for over a year. Finally, after some prompting from family members, we decided to self-publish our book at Amazon. Publishing Robby's Quest for Seed was a difficult decision, however, the birth of our grandson Rylie gave us some added incentive. We decided to dedicate the first book to Rylie. We also thought it would be nice to leave something behind for our children and their children.
To date, we have written and self-published six books, Robby's Quest for Seed, Robby's Quest: Ocean Bound, Robby's Quest: Return of the Cat, Robby's Quest: Thrills and Chills, Hershey Learns a Lesson and Adventures of Sammy the Dalmatian and Friends. All of our books can be purchased on digital from Amazon or on Paperback from Createspace. Additionally, all six books are now available on Audio either on Amazon, iTunes or Audible.com.
