Children’s Books

a

In early 2006, I gave away the family television (effectively replicating for my children the TV free upbringing that I had). In my newfound spare time, I started drafting ‘Words from Daddy’s Mouth’; a collection of illustrated children’s stories.  Click here to go direct to the Words from Daddy’s Mouth website.
