— Fred the monkey is being bulled and is keeping it a SECRET —
When Jason Brown moves to town he is lonely but does not know how to make friends. Instead he starts picking on Fred who is much smaller than him. Fred does not want to snitch and does not tell on Jason. But when Fred stops playing outside his friends figure out the reason. Fred’s friends teach him that some time ‘telling’ is the right thing to do and even heroic because it protects everybody. The story of Fred and Jason is told in rhymes and is accompanied by beautiful illustrations that are sure to entertain.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My favorite pastime is reading, which can be attributed to my early introduction to books. I hope my stories will attract young readers to the wonderful world of words. My first children’s book “Clothes Have Feelings Too! was so well received it motivated me to continue writing for children and address in my books issues that are pertinent and important to young readers. Statistics show that bullies come in all shapes and sizes and from all social classes. Addressing this very important issue in a fun story teaches children the importance of reporting bullying is heroic and the right thing to do.
