Welcome to duckandfriends.com! I’m so excited you’re here! This website is the home of all my books: charmingly silly early readers, fun and adventuresome chapter books, beginning piano music for Christmas, class piano for adults and a high school/college level music theory textbook.  It’s also the home of my blog where I post about children reading, book reviews, an occasional author interview and anything else I feel like writing about. 

Take a look around and browse. If you look hard enough, you’ll even find the recipe for the purple elephant’s favorite cocoa cookies!
