Fred: A Watch me Paint Book

Independent Spirit Pub

Full color original oil paintings illustrate this funny and inspirational true story about artist Natalie Buske Thomas' childhood. Watch Natalie paint the art (via her YouTube Channel), making this book a unique interactive multimedia experience. Early discouragement from Natalie's dreadfully unimaginative art teacher didn't stop her from becoming an artist. Falling off her bicycle on an impossibly steep hill, getting bit on her you-know-what by a goose during Goose Tag, and freezing her tongue on the icy railing on Grandpa's porch after her cousins dared her to do it--well, none of those things broke Natalie's spirit. Today her paintings are in galleries and exhibits, and her dream of living and painting in Ireland has come true. Inspirational and funny, this book about Natalie (aka "Fred") lends itself to learning inference, vocabulary words, irony, and descriptive prose. Don't forget what makes this book special. Readers can watch the author paint the illustrations via short fun videos on the author's YouTube Channel. *If you like the digital version, buy the hardcover or paperback book for a special child, your local library or children's hospital, or just because.

Books 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6! The first six full length books in the Serena Wilcox Mysteries: Angels Mark, Covert Coffee, Bluebird Flown, Project Scarecrow, Ruby Red, and Project Scarecrow are now available in one volume. This series is an unusual set of futuristic Christian mystery and suspense thrillers that are provocative and controversial. The writing style improves with each book and the pacing becomes faster and faster. If you enjoy clean reads with plot twists that you can't see coming, you'll be hooked on these books.

The future of the nation depends on former private detective Serena Wilcox and her unlikely crew. The Serena Wilcox books are quirky, suspenseful and unpredictable thrillers, with many plot twists and creative story lines about corrupt government and political nastiness. These are unusual books that don't fit neatly into any preconceived notion of what a mystery book should be. The Serena Six inspire independent thinking about contemporary themes surrounding politics, religion, science, and technology, and are suitable for YA through adult readers. Dry humor is sprinkled throughout the books, as well as plenty of geek candy and farce.

In "Angels Mark", Serena Wilcox and her family have destroyed their old home and faked their deaths to go off the grid under new identities, after obtaining insider information about a threat to the United States. The threat results in a geographically divided America, with two governing presidents: John Williams and Japanese-American Ann Kinji. Conspiracy, greed and a lust for power are at the root of this plot-twisting thriller about corrupt American government. Angels Mark features revolting and oddball characters, dry humor, and shocking dialog and events.

Books 4-6 beginning with Project Scarecrow take on an added dimension of time travel as an aid to Serena's investigations. Unusual plots, vivid characters, suspense, and corruption are at the heart of all six books.
