Guest appearances by Sherlock, a popular real animal and Purrsia, a character that will have your child looking to see what is stuck in her fur, in every illustration she is in.

Book # 5's Trailer
It seems I am behind in many things here as of late but I needed the time for my emotional and mental state to heal. The family is doing much better though still not in our home. We have been keeping busy with enrolling our daughter in a new school for the time being and I have added more photos on Deviant Art. I also spent some time writing a poem on the fire and the rabbits that we lost. You can find that on the "Beyond Freckles" page.

It will also include 2 Christmas crafts and a poem written by my daughter. My daughter will also be writing the sixth book with me. It will be about bullying. I've also added a bunch of free PDF downloads for the children, onto the Freckles website.
I won another Readers' Favorite 5 Star award. It is for Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 2: Freckles and the Less Fortunate. You can find the review on the review page.
