The Wonder Tails is a collection of 10 short funny illustrated stories for 6-8 year olds, about how certain iconic and beloved British wild animals came to be as they are. The main characters are all rebels, outsiders or underdogs - like vegetarian Basil Fox, Lavinia the antisocial Starling, or Brocker the chunky Badger who longs to dance like a Strictly star. But each tale celebrates cheerful and positive diversity, offers comforting life lessons, affirms its fine to want different things from your friends, and suggests that the best way to be happy is to just - go be yourself! Meet: The Bird Who Rode the Comet's Tail Bog Brush Billy The Resolute Robin The Dancing Badger of Beacon Hill A Vegetarian in the Henhouse The Very Hopeful Caterpillar The Day of the Dormouse Bella the Barn Owl & the Lido of Lu-urrve Nutters Gift The Squirrel & the Star child Set in iconic locations around Britain like Hadrian's Wall, Sherwood Forest and Brighton Pier, The Tails have eccentric, endearing characters for children to fall in love with; fighting battles they can relate to, in circumstances they can identify with.

The journey of one woman who is professional Social Worker who carries you through the politics of the system based upon human nature, combined with the perception of professionalism. The title refers to animals that tend to act on their instincts without conscience. The female spirit dominates by looking at each scene candidly as it is played out that underscores facets of American government in the twenty-first century and beyond. The main text opens around 1970 when Tasha returns to work after Maxi-Facial Surgery. She finds it strange when her new supervisor indicates that she is to have a conference with him for pre-evaluation of job performance, as the yearly performance evaluation is not until May. Aspects of her behavior are assessed as seductive and each worker is told that to keep their job, they would have to take psycho-therapy. Tasha feels somewhat self-conscious and the perception that she has falsified records leaves her in a fairly precarious position. Jessie provides a measure of comfort and she starts going to church on a weekly basis. She files an EEOC Complaint, the President of the Labor Union attempts to persuade her to drop the case and Tasha becomes ill. As the work progresses, she navigates numerous challenges, some of which test her level of resolve in one way or another, in an impulse to write, she finds a measure of sanity and also frequently turns her faith as a viable means towards overcoming the most daunting perceived and unperceived obstacles. The concluding pages of Tails of a Social Worker recount Tashas impression of her childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, which is a vivid expose of efforts to reconcile her seductiveness with some of her professional goals. In the closing, Tasha was often highly misunderstood. Many people wanted to crush her spirit because she didnt conform to their lifestyle. The work is intended to capture the imagination to enlighten and to provoke thought.

Attaining Nirvana, isn’t my cuppa. Zen, meditation, Koan; Groan!! Yoga, chanting, is just not my thing. And, But, I need to say things. I like discussions. But, for that, It would take more than just me. It’s funny, how fast, my family finds employment, at the mere clearing of my throat. It’s an itch I need to scratch. So, I write. I am really not so author-y; Mostly, am just trying to be funny. But, I’d love to connect, with the literary intellect, and I won’t mind the moolah, I may just collect. The kids too, may be nice; Hoping for an inheritance.
