Beatrice and the Sunflower Gift
Beatrice and the Sunflower Gift is my first children’s book. It is about a small turtle named Beatrice, who is afraid to engage with the world around her. With the guidance of a little white butterfly, Beatrice goes on an adventure that helps her to develop self-confidence and make new friends. My book conveys that heartfelt actions can speak big volumes and that a leader can come in any shape or form!

Gloria's Hope Tree
Gloria's Hope Tree is a book about love and loss. It tells the story of a special maple tree, a young girl named Gloria and her father, and the deep bond they all share. Through this book, I hope to provide comfort to those who are grieving, for no one is meant to carry the weight of his or her struggles alone.
