Darwin Finds Freedom – my first picture book – will be released May 2020!

Darwin Finds Freedom is the story of a mouse named Darwin. Forced to flee, Darwin searches for the Free Mice from Grandfather’s stories. If they exist, will they accept a scaredy-mouse like him? Will the King of all Creatures give him the courage he needs?

Darwin CoverThe thought of going outside made his nose twitch and his ears quiver and his legs tremble. I could slip into the river and get carried over a waterfall or a boulder could land on my head.
