About the Book

The season of autumn is one of the most colorful times of the year, bringing bright shades of crimson, orange, and yellow leaves floating down everywhere. Plump orange pumpkins, hayrides, cornfields, and so much more delight the senses of young and old, especially of those who travel for miles to experience all that autumn offers. HELLO AUTUMN GOODBYE AUTUMN takes the reader from August when signs of autumn begin to appear, to November, when Mother Earth is quiet, dreary, and at rest, just before the first snowfall is expected. Illustrator, John Kirkpatrick, embraces each thought, opening the eyes of a child, or an adult, with his warm illustrations, inviting the reader to enjoy the season of all seasons.

About the Author

Since I was a very young child I loved to do creative writing. At eight years old I sat in front of an old 1950's radio, jotted down news stories, then created my own newspaper and sold them for five cents each around the neighborhood. Initially, I wrote poetry for many years, and became published in my late twenties. By the time I was 30 years old, my creative writing blossomed into doing freelance feature stories, and taking on assignments for local newspapers. I also initiated a poetry column that ran weekly,as well. A few real-life experiences allowed me to write children's books, but the manuscripts just sat in a drawer, until 2008. It was then, I decided to take them out of the drawer, dust them off, and get them published.
