The Skeleton Sisters and The Skeleton Sisters 2: The Road Back to Ridgefield

Can friendship last forever? That is what The Skeleton Sisters are about to find out.

Four young girls, each from very different households come together under a big old oak tree on a warm day in 1963 and promise to be friends forever. Those bonds hold until after high school graduation. Thirty years later the four childhood friends have lived very different lives. Yet fate brings them together again, and that's when the skeletons from the past really start to fall out of their closets.

Can the friendship that was formed under the big old oak tree all these years ago, withstand the storm?

Officer George

Officer George front cover

The initial concept of Officer George came from a passion to promote the development of a safe and approachable relationship between the police and the general public, particularly the younger generations. Officer George has been written in a fun and memorable way to help re-establish a positive association between young children and the police, portraying them as friendly and approachable.
