Global Book Nominee for Chidlren's Fiction

Being different can be a heavy burden at any age, but for a child? Who doesn’t remember getting picked last for Red Rover, messing up your book report in front of everyone or trying to ignore hurtful nicknames?
Baylard Bear also knows what it’s like to be DIFFERENT.
When he was just a few weeks old, he was left on the steps of a human orphanage by his bear parents, who wanted a better life for him. Now if Baylard has even a prayer of being adopted by a loving human family, he must learn to do all the things human children do.

An unconventional 59-year old woman, Francesca, and her resourceful 10-year old granddaughter, Sarah, share the adventures of a lifetime over the summer of 1947 in Lost Nation, Iowa. Together, they enchant barnstorming pilots, wow Clinton County Fair attendees, conquer the skies, confront an escaped arsonist, discover how Lost Nation got its intriguing name, and eventually demonstrate to one another the greatest truth about love.


Stories They Could Tell - companion song 
with "Francesca of Lost Nation"

Some months before the book launch, it struck me to pair a companion song entitled, "Stories They Could Tell" with my novel "Francesca of Lost Nation."
The song was co-written by
multi-Grammy winner Carl Jackson and Nashville songwriter Cinda (aka Lucinda Sue Crosby - me!) and is based on a real experience from my life.

Hint: See how
Roy Rogers was involved
