My mom is a children's book author and I am going to shamelessly promote her new book here.
In fact If you have never read any of mom's books, I'm going to show you what y'all have been missing.
If you've got a youngun' you should check these out. the standard genre here is young adult historical fiction. It's a tough gig, but mom has been quite successful.
Her newest book is called Secrets of Greymoor
