Up In Smoke


Up In Smoke is the title of my children’s book which I wrote and illustrated with the help of my husband, Larry. He actually had the idea for this story and I consulted with him on technical details. I wanted to write a book for little kids that was a nice story about a loving family who cooperated on jobs that needed to be done with a happy spirit and when it came time to have fun they made their own entertainment with a family band and with singing and dancing. The ISBN # is 978-1-60860-934-5

  1. On my list of resolutions every New Years Eve I have listed-illustrate a children's book. I have been published as of April '10 and am working on my 2nd book-writing and illustrating. So I don't think I'll be taking that resolution off my list.

  3. Hi Susan! Great job on the book! It is exactly the kind of wholesome reading material our kids need today. I can't wait for my 9 year old son to receive his autographed copy! 😉 Keep up the good work! Cheers!

  5. A pair of grandparents at the RV park where we are currently staying had a situation come up that is a good teaching experience. Their grandson age 11 is staying with them and going to the local school. I don't know what the situation was at his home but he desperately wanted to come. After a few months he decided he didn't want to stay so he was taken home-a 6 hr trip- to see his mother. After much discussion it was decided that he come back here and finish out the school year with his grandparents because he made a commitment and he should follow through with it. I thought that was a wonderful thing his grandmother did. So many adults have a very cavalier attitude about commitments-college,marriage-or just giving their word they will do something. This little boy will have the concept of what it means to follow through.

  9. Susan and Larry,
    My books arrived. I am delighted with them. It is a wonderful story and the illustrations are terrific. My guess is that all the family members in the illustrations are accurate resemblances' as that of Uncle Peter. His is right on! I am looking forward to giving this wonderful book to friends and family. Keep on drawing and writing and passing your travels experiences on.
    Thanks a heap, Karen
