Book Launch for The Day I Met The Nuts

Well, I'm busy preparing for THE DAY I MET THE NUTS book launch. And I'm thrilled that it's being held at ARTINSIGHTS Animation and Film Art Gallery. How cool is that? Books, animation art...a gallery...a fine time! I can't wait to see all the excited faces of kids who love animation and illustration art and a good read. I'll be there signing books and meeting young readers. So if you live in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area, come by and check us out.

Don't listen to him up there. He's a nut!

It's out! My book that is....available for the masses. I'm so excited about this book because it will help all those kiddos out there who must suffer through food allergies. I'm allergic to those crazy nuts as well, and so is my son. In fact, Roman was the inspiration for this story. He is a true allergy champ.

Portions of the proceeds from my book help to support a good cause, FAAN. FAAN is the world leader in food allergy and anaphylaxis awareness. Their mission is to raise public awareness, to provide advocacy and education, as well as to advance research on behalf of all those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis.

Thanks for checking out my book and for supporting all of us who must find a way around those crazy nuts!

Nut free and lovin' it,
