I write mainstream novels for kids. In my books, you can expect ADVENTURE and SUBSTANCE, but I'll always respect the INNOCENCE of our children. Though I write for a young audience, many adults have applauded my work and asked, "Why is this just for kids?"
**Drawing on my background in education, I like to make free resources available on my website for using my books in the classroom.
**I have also written a series of Bible stories under the pen name Shell Isenhoff, just to keep the genres separate.

What a fantastic story. Well written, colorful analogies, and grains of historical facts about the Underground Railroad makes The Candle Star an enlightening read, and it show cases a how much of a difference one person can make if they choose to act upon the opportunities presented to them. This would be a great story for parents and teachers to discuss with their students about this part of America's sordid and glorious history.
