What's Up, Cody?

 

Life in Grayson’s pasture is tough for a little cowbird named Cody. Pop wants to teach him new things – scary things. His best friend Wally means well but is forever getting him in trouble. Now, there’s a newcomer in the pasture – a bully who’s picking on Cody. Will Cody ever feel safe in his pasture? Sharing his secret might help – or it could bring more trouble. When a dangerous threat sweeps the pasture, will Cody find a way to face his fears?

Sousanna: The Lost Daughter

 

Gripping and heart-wrenching; historically important, with contemporary relevance. —Kirkus Reviews

 

Five-year-old Sousanna is often cold and always hungry, but she’s happy living in post-WWII Greece with her kind and loving family. Then one day a stranger approaches Sousanna’s father with a startling proposition, made bearable only by the assurance that the situation is temporary.

 

But all is not as it seems, and Sousanna is taken from her home to a foreign place where she’s adopted by an American couple. Everything is different and no one understands her. How will Sousanna endure alone in this strange place, where her culture, her language, and even her name are taken from her? Will her parents ever find her?

 

Heart-wrenching and heart-warming by turns, this timely novel inspired by true events explores the bonds between parents and child, the lasting effects of words spoken to young children, and what “for the good of the child” means.

Available from Amazon or wherever fine books are sold.

The Little House on the Prairie books and TV show have inspired generations, but few people know the history of the Ingalls family in Freemasonry.

TRAVEL TALES

 

Winnie Bowen hiked into Machu Picchu at almost 70 years of age, and was hiking the Alps at 80. Bowen prefers alternative means of travel like biking and hiking to large ships or tour buses. This allows her to seek out sites off the beaten path that most people miss.

 

From five-star hotels to pup tents on the beach and even a brothel, she’s been there. Sampling local cuisine has led to some unexpected surprises. Opium ice cream? She’ll try anything once. Traveling with Bowen, the adventures never end, and reading her two-book set of Travel Tales is a peek into the diaries of her well-traveled life.

 

Book 1, Travel Tales from the Porch Swing covers visits to North, Central, and South America—including Cuba—as well as China.

Book 2, Passport to Europe, follows Bowen all over Europe and also Russia.
