Her debut children’s picture book, Oh No! Reindeer Flu! was released for sale on October 3, 2019, and is available at Amazon. When the reindeer are ill on Christmas Eve, the North Pole huskies save the day by pulling Santa’s sleigh. Beautifully illustrated by Tamara Campeau, Kirkus Review calls it “A lively holiday tale that may make youngsters wonder why Santa ever used reindeer in the first place.”
