2017 Reader's Favorite Bronze Medalist in Children's Adventure 


In The Big Cheese Festival, we meet Stubby Mouse and his family and friends. We learn that Stubby Mouse has a secret, that he is being bullied by another mouse, simply because his tail is short. Read how Stubby Mouse stood up for himself, and how he ended the bullying, in this delightful story for children. Targeted at ages 4-8, the book is easy to read and perfect for home or classroom. Children learn how bad bullying is, and what they can do to help stop bullies! Stubby Mouse encourages children to take a stand against bullies, and always be kind to each other. This story illustrates how everyone is different and unique, and it is a delightful read with cute illustrations for both children and adults. Take a stand against bullying today!


From Mrs.D

This is the second book I’ve read by authors S. Jackson and A. Raymond. Just as in their previous book, which I read today, “Suzy Has a Secret,” the authors are tackling another important subject—bullying. Their story speaks about a difficult subject that children face every minute of their lives. The pain, the shame, the loss of confidence could be experienced during both their childhood and their adult life. The scars from the bullying may never heal, and victimized children could turn into aggressors, outcasts, or criminals. Abused by bullies, children may never recover their self-esteem and self-worth.

This book also teaches that being different is OK. Sometimes it is even rewarding—just like in this book, a dance with a beautiful girl or special talents that other children may not have. Parents and teachers should think of using this story as a foundation for debates about how to stop bullying in school and on the streets, and how the victim feels when the stronger and crueler make fun of them. It's also a good starter for homeschools and day-care centers. The earlier we teach our children what impact bullying has on the lives of harassed children, the better chance we have to save another child from the violence. Well done!




S. Jackson is a retired registered nurse; a member of the Catholic Church, and has taught kindergarten Catechism; she has worked in various capacities for The American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, Cub and Boy Scouts, (son, Noah, is an Eagle Scout), and sponsored trips for high school children music. She loves all forms of art but mostly focuses on the visual arts; such as amateur photography, traditional, and graphic art as her health allows.


A. Raymond is a member of the Catholic Church, and has helped his wife with The American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, Cub and Boy Scouts, and sponsored children alongside his wife on music trips. He devotes his spare time to fishing, reading, playing poker, Jeeping, and travel adventures with his wife. Both love spending time with their grandson, Austin.

A Good Guide for Parents and Children

This book teaches a child, ages four to eight years-old, about personal safety and body ownership. Children learn how to identify who safe adults are in a child’s life. This book shows in positive and practical ways how parents, and educators, can talk to children about personal safety. Children learn about bad touch and good touch, and how their body belongs to them. Parents and educators can help children learn who the safe people are in their lives, and that they can always tell one of them about anything that may happen, and they aren’t comfortable about. Using little bug fairies and fairy houses, ensures that children aren’t scared when this story is read to them, or they read it on their own.

From Mrs.D.

Inappropriate touching is a delicate subject. It is always hard and uncomfortable to talk to children about their bodies and how they should act if someone touches them improperly and then asks the child to keep it a secret. Fear can seal the child’s lips.

“Suzy Has a Secret” is about teaching a child to be open with their parents or to even tell a trusted friend if something terrible happens. This is what happened to Suzy in this fleeting story when her relative touched her in places that were wrong. Scared and ashamed, Suzy doesn’t know how to respond to her uncle’s game. This creates a battle in her immature mind, because she knows what is right and wrong. Her parents always taught her that if something bad happened, she should tell them immediately.

Confused, Suzy turns to her friend. Sometimes it is easier for a child to tell a reliable friend what happened than to confess it to parents. Suzy is no different, and she shares her uncle’s dreadful actions with her friend Lucy, who convinces her to talk to Suzy’s parents. So she did.

This book is a good guide for parents and children on how to tackle this very important subject. Every child should know that it is safe to tell someone trusted if someone touches him or her in private places without permission.

A great tool in how to delicately and directly deal with child abuse!
A useful book for those with children or little ones in their life!


I grew up in a small Kansas (USA) town and I lived in more than one state since then. At this time, my husband and I split our time between Kansas and Colorado (we love the mountains and off road 4-wheeling). Traveling is one of our most favorite things to do and I always have a book or even three books that I read, in the same week. Books were really my thing. It seemed like every time I turned around I was obtaining a new library card due to the current one being stamped complete. Diving into a good book made any day perfect and you would be surprised at the number of books I read over and over. I drew paper dolls and clothes for them, and using watercolor as my medium when painting scenes, especially flowers. I continued with art in high school exploring a wide variety of arts and I loved it! The creative side of me loves to be an amateur "shutter-bug" and we actually have an online art gallery. In college I went into the sciences of all things and received a Bachelor's degree in the Science of Nursing. My nursing career was highly successful and I hung up my nursing hat in December 2012.

A Power and Beauty of Destiny


Everything Happens for a Reason

 (The Hamptons Book 1) 






Shaken from the sudden death of her mother, Poppy Jackson’s only light amidst all the darkness is the prospect of embarking on an exciting new career with major investment stockbrokers Hawkins, Munroe and Sable, working as PA to the amiable Greg Sable.

The company’s Annual Conference is a big deal in the stock broking world and though keen to impress, Poppy’s focus wavers at the appearance of the cheeky Oliver Sullivan. After a rocky start, an unexpected romance begins to bloom. Can their love overcome their conflicting backgrounds? And how will Poppy cope when tragedy strikes a second time?

Meanwhile, having made the shocking discovery of his real birth father’s identity, Richard Jones decides to earn the right to take control of the family business and not just because he’d inherited it. His mother, however, is growing increasingly frustrated at his refusal to step up. Itching to put her own plans into progress she increases the pressure, completely oblivious to the consequences.

Curl up and relax with this tale of love, loss and everything in between, and watch as the worlds of Poppy and Richard are drawn together in a twist of fate, proving that everything really does happen for a reason…


From Mrs.D

I was given this moving book by the author, and boy, I wasn’t disappointed. It is a very relaxing and captivating read, with good, developed characters, like those we meet daily. The main character, Poppy, reminded me of young women I’d already met at some point in my life.

Poppy tried to live her life like every other ambitious young woman who dares to reach for her star. Smart and driven, she tried to balance her life between her career and her private life. Just as in reality, there are many struggles and successes, losses and loves, and unhealed wounds and painful memories of her past. Luckily for her, she has great people in her life that she can trust and who support her completely.

Tina-Marie Miller did superb work in creating her characters. It was a smart strategy to show readers the city and country life that many readers could relate to. At first the story appears as a charismatic and loving fantasy, but its innocence soon disappears and the sweet illusion is crushed by the disturbing events and tragedies. I admit this story kept me wondering what would happen in the end, but I’m not willing to share my thoughts; each reader must find it for themselves…





Tina-Marie Miller is a UK based author and writer of women's fiction. Having previously enjoyed a successful career working for a number of blue chip organisations based in London and the Home Counties, Tina-Marie now lives in a small village in South Cornwall where she spends her time reading, writing, meditating and walking along the idyllic Cornwall coasts.

She enjoys nothing more than curling up with a good book and a cup of tea (or a glass of red!), and losing herself in tales of love, life and laughter.
