A year or so ago my friend Mike Furches contacted me to ask if I would illustrate a children’s book he and his wife, Mary Jane, had written. I almost always say “no” to these projects because more often than not, publishing companies want to pick their own illustrators for projects, so all my efforts come to naught. For some reason though, I said “yes” to Mike and Mary Jane, and I am glad I did.

The culmination of our efforts is a book on Mindstir Media called Herald the Angel. I got my copies yesterday and I must say I am very pleased with how it turned out. It’s available in both hard cover and paperback. My hard cover is going right to the young man I dedicated my illustrations to, my grandson David John.

A synopsis of the book is as follows:

Herald is an angel who struggles to trust that he is good enough. No matter how hard he tries, it seems that others are always outshining him. As a heavenly choir is assembled to celebrate the birth of the Christ child, Herald must decide whether he will share the gifts he has to offer.

Join Herald on his journey to discover the beauty of what’s possible when you put your whole heart into whatever you do. Herald deals with other issues such as bullying where parents can openly discuss issues with their children as a learning point in an easy to understand way for small children.

My prayer is that this book blesses and helps a lot of people. I had a great time doing this project and it has put the bug in me to create a book of my own. If you’d like to pick up a copy for yourself, click here.
