Humorous picture book (4-7 years)
Word Count:

When life sends you lemons…find a way to stop the next delivery!

LEMONS! is a 580-word story for 4-6 year olds. Lucy’s waiting for the toy she ordered but instead gets an unexpected delivery of lemons. When the lemon deliveries keep coming, each bigger than the last, her little problem suddenly turns into a truck-load of laugh out loud fun. As she comes up with inventive ways to use her plentiful supply of unwanted lemons, her resourcefulness and patience are put to the test. But to survive this mountain of lemons, she’ll have to make more than lemonade in this Robert Munsch style story.

I’m currently seeking representation for my children’s book manuscripts. I’m already an established romance author and represented by Jill Marsal of Marsal Lyon Literary. I’ve written and published fifteen romance novels and novellas, with the first released in 2011. My publishers have included Entangled Publishing, Simon & Schuster, and Amazon Encore, among others. I’m a member of RWA, SCBWI, and 12×12. I have a solid social media following and am constantly working toward building my reader base.

Additional manuscripts are available upon request. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Ding! Dong!

Lucy sprinted to the door, flinging it open. A small box sat on the front porch. It was heavier than it looked. She’d thought it would be bigger. And lighter. She ripped open the box.


Lucy checked the label. It was smeared, but it looked like her name.
