Fish Outta Water


My first ever children’s picture book is now on the market

There's me, there's the book...and there's a little girl in the corner flexing her muscles. You go, girl!

Part of Pearson’s Stepping Stones series, Fish Outta Water is written by me and illustrated by talented Antiguan artist Zavian Archibald. You can read more about it here. Thanks, as always, for the support.

The picture of me mugging for the camera above is from the Antigua Public Library summer reading programme, by the way; and, by the way, the first audience to hear me read from the finished version of this book. We had a good time together as suggested by this excerpt from acting Chief Librarian Ryllis Mannix’s thank you letter:

“Thank you for sharing. You were inspiring, positive and uplifting and were a delight to the children. Your presentation was one of the highlights of the program and you were an incredible motivator. The children kept speaking about you and your presentation as the days continued.”

Also as evidenced images below (courtesy the Antigua Public Library):
