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 about the BEST SELLING books!

Every Hour Counts should really be called "City of Brass" as it  is an accounting of time from 1879 - 1907 as related by an old 1879 Gilbert Clock about the city it was made in an its people.. It tells you about its owners, the times it was a part of and the rich history. Many facts which you may or may not be aware of explode before your eyes, as you meet people and get acquainted with the first cars, the first New Year's Eve "drop" in New York. You will meet colorful people of that era and facts that you will  amaze you.

"Moving West," the sequel to Every Hour Counts  introduces you to the 1900's as the family and Gilbert move from the East to Iowa. The family grows and folks leave, and the beautiful Gilbert Clock continues his tale about their lives.

"The Incident" involves detective work by the police departments in both Tampa Florida and in  Alabama. The story 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 a controversial Tampa Police Department Detective team.

"Deavereau and the Napoleon Clock Incident" takes place in Guntersville, Alabama where  Bill Deavereau and his beautiful assistant, Lori, unravel the strange case of the devious Mr. Benjamin Franklin Spears and his band of thieves. The question is, Is it really the clock they are seeking or something else?

In "Intrument of Murder," the duo of Deavereau and Lori find unexpected suspects flooding into their investigation as the family finds its way to the beautiful lakeside town of Guntersville, Alabama.  Murder takes place when least expected, and causes panic for the innocent relatives, Shadow of the past make this an intriguing adventure in Deavereau's life.


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 seven books, with a few more pages thrown in. Several pre-fourth grade teachers have used the book and found it was useful, i.e. "Jakes World for Kids" was launched. The color plates make it  a worth-while gift book for you to give to any child, relative or not....there is even a place for a picture of you or the little loved one. A perfect Christmas Gift.
