To amuse ourselves we write stories.  To drive ourselves techno-crazy we self-publish.  Here are our 3 books on Amazon which are, if we don't say, PRETTY GOOD reads (and did we mention . . CHEAP!)

  • The Pulling, Climbing, Falling Down Tale of Maui and His Back Legs is based on a true story

  • The Real Tale of Little Red Riding Hood & the Wolf restores the Wolf's reputation and you'll decide if it's true.

  • Happiness Hacks is a compilation of neuroscience research we shared on MAXyourMIND 

Buy all three and there is no discount because as we mentioned they are CHEAP but

you WILL receive our gratitude.

 It's written for little ones, but my 13 year old Daughter and I Love This Book!

Any one who has ever faced a challenge would love this book.
It is charming, not pretentious or preachy, just sweet and dear, and you really root for Maui the Cat!

Excellent Children's book about over coming obstacles

Reviewed February 5, 2019

This is a great book that teaches children about perseverance, hard work, and determination by telling the story about Maui and how he teaches himself how to walk, run, and jump again. He worked hard to gain his skills back even after Vet said his back legs would not work again.

Excellent story for children, keep trying and trying at what you want to do

This story was very nice and told a good lesson about not giving up...true story!  The illustrations were cute also

The Pulling, Climbing, Falling Down Tale of Maui and His Back Legs

by Peggy Arndt

Maui badly wants to drink cool, clear running water from the sink, climb stairs and chase lizards - like he has always loved to do—but now his back legs have stopped working. He determinedly drags himself around by his front paws trying to solve the puzzle of what will fix his back legs. With perseverance and patience, he makes progress - but will he ever be able to jump high enough again to get onto the sink? This is tale for anyone who has ever fallen and needed to learn to get back up and try again.

 The Real Tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

by Judith Westerfield

Think again if you thought you knew the story of Red Riding Hood and the wolf. The REAL tale is a bedtime story that guarantees children (and you too) fall asleep with a smile.

A fun re-imagined story that highlights the best of human and humane traits of Red Riding Hood, Grandma and of course, the wolf

I thought you’d like some feedback on your wonderful book! Our granddaughter Milla loved it! I read it to her a few days ago, and then we read it again today, taking turns reading the pages. She is 6 years old, and already an excellent reader even though she is only in kindergarten. The only word she was not familiar with was “orphan”. We even read Freddie’s  forward & warning! She says she loves this story so much better than the original!
Thank you for sharing this with us. Being an anthropologist major, I think it’s a great  take on the evolution of pets.

5.0 out of 5 stars -  Wonderful read for kids and adults too!

A fresh and enlightening take on an old tale (tail). Wonderful read!

5.0 out of 5 stars - -For the wolf lovers

An imaginative and fun retelling of the classic tale, this book is for anyone who has ever been lonely, left out, misunderstood or in need of a friend. With colorful pictures it takes you on a walk with the wolf through the forest to grandma’s house.

This book was so easy and fun to read. The illustrations are adorable. So many people, myself included, are depressed during this COVID pandemic and are stuck at home.

I recommend this book to everyone.
