"I am" RJ the Mouse: Help Illustrate My Story

I need your help so that I can illustrate the next book in the RJ the Mouse series. Since releasing my first book "The Lost Castle: The Adventures of RJ the Mouse" I have been asked many times if I will illustrate my next book? For everyone new and familiar this is your chance to help out and make a big difference!

This is something that really means a lot to me, and it provides our children with another great series for them to enjoy. For anyone who joins and contributes to this goal of mine know how grateful I am for your support! 

Join the Journey, and help me Complete the Adventure!

Why Am I Doing This?

Supporting this campaign brings me one step closer to becoming a full time author. Breaking into this industry is incredibly difficult, and this is the next step for me in that process.

Most importantly I believe that reading to the children in our lives is one of the most important gifts we can share with them. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, sibling, or a family friend we can all make a huge impact by simply reading to our kids. The RJ the Mouse series is dedicated to teaching kids about life lessons, and for you to share that special bonding moment with them.
