Tour Marm

I'm in the midst of writing a childrens' book: Is there a Bogeyman in My Closet? Is there a Monster Under My Bed?

I have a very talented illustrator from England working on it -charming Sendakesque monsters.

And there's a surprise at the end that makes this book unique. Naturally, I cannot divulge this.

We'll be peddling it to publishers, soon, probably to smaller publishing houses that will accept an author/illustrator team.

It seems monsters and fierce creatures lurking in the shadows is a common theme and tons of childrens' books each year are dedicated to this subject.

One story I recently read actually had the child getting out of bed to use his toy gun to shoot them, dead. Terrific - a book teaching children to shoot guns at nothing but shadows. One wonders.

Hmmm. Jumping the shark - another one of your posts could be dedicated to the contemporary meaning of this phrase.


A very real death in its own special way...
