A Real Bike

Spent yesterday reviewing the sketches for the illustrations for a new book coming out next year. It’s called If I Had A Real Bike. It follows a simple story. Our hero wants to move up from a baby bike to a “real” bike. There are so many different kinds. Which kind shall it be? Road […]

New Adventures for Scarlett and Sam

It’s always a challenge when you finish a major project. There’s always a bit of a let-down. What do I do next? The manuscript for Scarlett and Sam’s second Bible adventure, The Search for the Shamir, has been put to bed. This one will feature King Solomon, Nathan the Prophet, and Ashmodai, king of the demons. […]


My website was hacked while I was off taking care of my new knee. Thanks to my webmaster, Wess Willis, it’s back up and running. I still have to go through it to make sure everything is here. If not, I’ll have to add new things. That will have to wait until after the holidays. […]

In Recovery

Eric, where have you been! I haven’t been here, that’s for sure. On October 14th, two weeks before my birthday, I went into the hospital to have my left knee replaced. It had been bothering me for years, causing a lot of pain and making walking difficult. I used to love to go hiking. In […]

Back To School

All my fans are heading back to school. Time for me to get back to business. I spent most of this week working on a book about bicycling in Portland. Portland is a great city for bicycling. You see bicycles everywhere. Sometimes there are more bikes on the street than cars. The story I’m working […]

We’ve had a lot of success this year with Skype visits. School will be starting all around the country in another month. Available dates are beginning to fill up. If you’d like to arrange for a Skype visit or would just like to get more information, click HERE.

New Videos

I have three new books coming out over the spring and summer. Yet, if you’ve been following me on Vimeo, you’ll see that I only have two new videos. How come? And how come I don’t have videos for lots of my books. I make them on my desktop computer. Why aren’t there more of […]

Website Update

I love technology. However, computers, electronics, and mechanical things just don’t like me. We’ve been trying to fix a leak in the upstairs shower for over a month. I watched all the caulking videos on YouTube. Should be simple. No luck. I’ve asked my neighbor Joe to recommend an handyman. Joe is a contractor who […]

New Books!

This is turning into an exciting season. Three new books have come out. The first was Rattlestiltskin. A few weeks ago I received my author copies for Little Red Rosie. Yesterday, the FedEx man delivered another box of books to the house. I opened it at once. Inside were the copies of Gabriel’s Horn, my […]

Off To France!

I see again that I haven’t kept up my resolution to post regularly. Lots of things are going on. We are preparing for a birding trip to the south of France to see birds in the Camargue region. This is an important wetland on the flyway between Europe and North Africa. We will be there […]
