We had hoped this broom would take flight prior to Halloween, but due to publishing delays it was pushed back.  It’s ready now though and will make a great gift idea for the upcoming holiday season.  My girls have enjoyed reading it year round and just the other day I caught them reciting lines and acting out scenes from the book.

The idea for this book was inspired by a young Katherine Louise Boyet ‘Kate’, and a special thank you to her mother for sharing the idea with Jackie.

I’m honored that Jackie asked me to write it and thrilled to share it with you now. The artwork and design of illustrator Jacqueline Frackelton are beyond amazing in Fly To The Moon On A Witch’s Broom.  I promise you will not be disappointed.  Check out page 8 below!

Dream Big! 

The journey of creating this book has been as magical as the story itself, and was born by a confluence of dreams. Fly to the Moon on a Witch’s Broom depicts the magic of exploration meeting opportunity.  Such courage found only in the eyes and spirit of a child can inspire us all.  Kate the Great was not afraid to dream big and when a chance encounter gave her reason to believe she grabbed her new found hope and soared to unimaginable heights. Kate the Great will Fly to the Moon!

Similarly our talents have collided by mere chance and circumstance and the opportunities now seem endless.  It all began one evening amidst a gathering of friends and children playing.  Jacqueline had an idea for a story and asked if I would like to write it.  The words just came and the rhythm flowed.  It has been thrilling to watch the magic come to life with Jacqueline’s amazing artwork and creative design. In the same soaring fashion of Kate the Great, this first book shall launch the dreams of an artist and a writer.
