Archives for the month of: May, 2012

I’ve been discovering the different social media tools over the past few weeks – it’s a little daunting.  I think I have Twitter kind of sorted out. 

There’s 10 days left in the crowd funding campaign to help launch the next Duffy The Dragon title – I need a big pick-up in response. 

Anyone got any ideas as to how I can make this work.  Would be much appreciated.  You can see the crowd funding campaign at:





Two days ago, when I set up a WordPress account, something unexpected happened.  I followed the tutorials to focus this Blog which led me to re-think where I’m going with my Duffy books.  My direction has become clearer and simpler.  I realize I had been traveling down a rather twisty path for the last few years.

Back on track – feeling excited and energized.

Duffy stories are written to celebrate and nurture kindness.  Every adventure engages younger children (2-9 year olds), in being thoughtful, kind and caring in their relationships with each other, animals and the environment.

Children connect with Duffy – they inherently understand and seek kindness.  Duffy is a sweet, fantasy character that touches hearts.  Just as  Franklin The Turtle books connect with a  child’s discovery of every-day-life – i.e. first day of school, Duffy stories connect with kids through acts of kindness and consideration for others.

My mission is to provide fun and entertaining reading material for little ones, which I believe the rhyming verse tales accomplish, while using the gentle dragon character to inspire the development of kind and caring people.

16 days left to get those big red dragony wings moving.  A $10 contribution gets you an author signed copy of the book “Duffy The ‘Green’ Dragon” or you can choose a copy of “Duffy The Christmassy Dragon.”  Mizzle the Mouse (who lives in Duffy’s horns) – is ready to go. Let’s do it.  Please forward to your network –  



Series of children's rhyming verse story books with environmental sustainability themes

Hi everyone: My first post on WordPress – I’ve launched a crowd sourcing campaign to support the development of the children’s storybooks I’ve been producing for a few years. This series of books in the Duffy The Dragon series is focused on engaging younger kids in environmental sustainability. Please check it out and fund the project – and/or send to your contacts.
