  1. Two new children’s books, written by local authors, The Adventures of Pokadot and Bleu. The Springtime Tales and The Summer Tales are available now, and soon the Autumn and Winter Tales will also be out.

    Pokadot and Bleu are two adorable bunnies who live outside of Beartown Forrest on Autumn Knoll. Each book has 5 short stories about their daily adventures around the knoll with their forest friends and grandbunnies. Fun stories with wholesome messages for kids 2 – 6 yo.

  7. I wrote & self published ‘Perennials… What you need to know. Tips and Advice to Grow Tried and True Perennials’ in 2011. It is a pretty reference book for both the experienced as well as beginning gardener who are interested in perennial gardening – just the right amount of information to grow perennials from my lifelong gardening experience.

    I have been a Dunwoody resident for 26 years. My sister in Vermont did all the pen & ink/watercolor illustratons. I have listed the appropriate zones, so the book is a great gift for friends and family in most of the Uninted Sates.

    It is available on both Amazon & Barnes & Noble.
