When we corroborate, we learn from each other and many times find our original concept was wrong. That support that we get from each other is vital at certain times.

Color plays an important part in the children's books but also raises the publishing prices tremendously.

Sometimes, two or more authors work on a book.

A brief story line tells you what the book is about without revealing the details that would spoil the ending for the reader.

Every Hour Counts is an accounting of time from 1879 - 1907 as related by an old 1879 Gilbert Clock. It tells you about its owners, the times in which it was watching and listening to the issues of the times. Many facts which you may or may not be aware of explode before your eyes, as it meets people and goes through times involving the first cars, the first New Year's Eve drop of the beautiful ball, in New York.

Moving West  introduces you to the 1900's as the family moves from the East to the mid-West in Iowa. The family grows, folks leave,  but the beautiful Gilbert Clock is there to tell you about  their lives.

"The Incident" involves detective work by the police departments in both Tampa Florida and in  Alabama. The crime weaves its way through the communities of Guntersville and Albertville as well as the Jacobin Corporation, in Tampa, leaving you breathlessly awaiting the climax.  You will be kept in the dark until the truth is unveiled by our Tampa detectives.

"Deavereau and the Napoleon Clock Incident takes place in Guntersville, Alabama where our newest exciting detective, Bill Deavereau, and his beautiful assistant, Lori attempt to unravel the strange case thrust upon them by the devious Mr. Benjamin Franklin Spears. Is it a clock they are seeking or something else?

In "Intrument of Murder," the duo finds unexpected characters flooding into their case as cousins, aunts, uncles, and  some other relatives find their way to the little town in an attempt to take away the very things Deavereau and Lori are searching for. Murder takes place when least expected, and even the main characters don't have a clue.


As we all know there are many books out there with cartoon characters that the children are taught to react to. We felt that we needed a tour guide that was real, that any child could love ...we found Jake. He was delighted to be able to walk through the pages of photographs and describe them in a language the children could understand.

The final book "Jakes World for Kids" is a compilation of the original group of books, with a few more pages thrown in. Several pre-fourth grade teachers thought a big book that they could use for instruction was needed, i.e. Jakes World for Kids was launched. The publishing cost was high due to the color plates used, but it is a worth-while gift book for you to give to any child, relative or not....We hope that you send for it and enjoy it!
