My writing career has three distinct parts, DREAMER, DABBLER and DETERMINED AUTHOR. Just like the tortoise in Aesop’s fable, it wasn’t until I almost reached the finish line, that I realized how much I wanted to write.

Moose’s Roof

Moose’s Roof

Until he discovered a park pavilion, Moose never knew life beneath a roof. His friends Beaver, Bear and Squirrel, however, all seemed to be roof experts. Moose decides to put his antlers to good use. With his friends’ help, he soon has a permanent roof over his head. But it becomes more trouble than worth. Moose can’t lie down to sleep, can’t balance when he walks and can’t reach the tender weeds at the bottom of the pond. His friends can only offer advice from the life they know, which is no help at all to tired, cranky Moose. When a sudden storm blows his roof away, his aches and pains disappear. Moose gets a good night sleep and eats a wonderful weedy breakfast. He realizes the sky over his head is roof enough for him.
