Brenda's Barnyard Books

Albert's Happy Thanksgiving was my first children's book. It was published in 2010. After numerous rewrites, I entered the manuscript in a contest at Ozark Creative Writers and won an award. That spurred me on.     Albert has been very well received and it was my joy to introduce him to schoolchildren in the classrooms.  This spring, my second book, "Cleveland the Green Camel" came out.  Children love the little turkey and the crazy camel, but they really like the goofy old goat, Frank.  That is what a great illustrator can do.  Frank will have his own book, but it will be a little while.  I'm still working on it.  A goat as unique as Frank can't be rushed.   I will be at OCW October 6 - 8 and will have both books there. Stop by and take a look.
