River on Fire
Publication Date: May 29, 2013
"River on Fire" is the story of Randall Smith, a foundling orphan growing up in the midwestern United States in the late 1960s. Without the intimate guidance of loving parents, Randall struggles to understand a dangerous and confusing world during one of the most tumultuous times in modern history. Immensely readable and filled with humor and irony, "River on Fire" will both warm and break your heart.
"From first page to last, there’s not a single false note to be heard. "River on Fire" is beautifully rendered, and Randall Smith is a hero you'll find it very easy indeed to root for. -- Stephen C. Spencer, "Upon Further Review"
An Elephant's Standing in There
Publication Date: July 2, 2014
Allow me to introduce you to AN ELEPHANT'S STANDING IN THERE, a whimsical story about an elephant standing in a little boy's bedroom that I wrote for my children many years ago. Though my kids have grown up themselves, I've held on to this tale because of the wonderful memories my family and I shared while reading it together.
After stumbling back onto the story roughly a year ago while going through some old things, an idea popped into my head. My daughter, a lovely young lady named Kody, had heard this story many times when she was a young girl. She had also developed an exceptional talent for illustration. I thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be fun if Kody illustrated our story for other families to share?" And that, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly what we've done. From my family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy AN ELEPHANT'S STANDING IN THERE, the first in what Kody and I hope will be a long series of stories for children.
A Ride on a Cloud
Publication Date: Septemeber 22, 2014
A RIDE ON A CLOUD is the story of a young boy who, after an unlikely encounter, is granted a wish that most kids dream of: a chance to ride on a cloud! Jump into a whimsical tale that is chalked full of talking fish, cloud ships and spectacular scenes for the entire family to enjoy!
This is perhaps my favorite of the children's stories I wrote for my kids when they were growing up. And once again, my daughter, Kody Storm Rowe, has done an absolutely superb job of bringing the story to life! If you and yours are fans of Dr. Seuss, A RIDE ON A CLOUD should be right up your alley. Once again, from my family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy A RIDE ON A CLOUD, the second of many children's stories to come from Kody and I.
