Thanks so much for a great visit. The Kids look for your book each time they come to the Library. They are so excited to check it out! They say, “Remember the lady read it to us!” Thanks, Amy Chapel            (Media Specialist, Tildenville Elementary)



I sent my friend a copy of Archie's Christmas Tale for her three year old daughter. She wrote back, "We did get your package on Thursday, and so far we have read the book about 15 times! She loves it! Thank you so much for the very special gift."   Erin


Love this story! Love little Archie! Love this author! Love my SIGNED first edition copy to be kept to share with Nate when we visit.   Betsy L. Brown - 5th Grade Elementary Teacher 


My Mom bought an autographed copy of Archie's Christmas Tale from you. Our last name is Archie, so she couldn't pass it up. We received it last night and I read it right away to our six children. We loved your story. Every sweet detail and rhyme was a treat.Thank you for writing it, I just wanted to let you know you have fans in Mississippi. Have a Very Merry Christmas.   The Archie Family   


...The children at Cherokee School loved it! I read it to 4 classes of 4th and 5th graders. I used many references from your book to tie in behaviors, choices and consequences.  Mollie DiBartolo (Orange County Corrections Dept.- Cherokee School Mentor) 

 I just wanted to tell you how delighted my daughter’s teachers were with your book.  I sent one in to her current 2nd grade teacher and then to her Kindergarten teacher who had both Alex and my son. They found the story to be as enchanting as I did.  My daughter is very proud of her signed copy.   Renee S.


I loved the story and I highly recommend it to anyone with a small child or grandchildren (or in my case for my niece and nephew).  It would be a wonderful tradition to read Archie's Christmas Tale every Christmas Eve.   DEFINITELY A MUST HAVE!!!!        Marsha Lynn J. 


(I purchased your book) for my sons and you were gracious enough to personalize it for them - Sean who is 4 and his baby brother Evan.  I just wanted to let you know that we read it for our bedtime story tonight and Sean was very interested in what happened next!  When we got to the end, I asked him what he thought of your story and he said enthusiastically "Great!" Just thought you would like to hear the latest "review" of your holiday story.     Sincerely,  Heather

My friend collects Christmas story books and she met you and purchased your book at the Winter Garden Art Festival last Saturday.  I have a few Thanksgiving and Christmas books and loved yours so much I wanted one to share with my granddaughters.  It's a touching story and I know they will both enjoy it a great deal. I am going to keep the book for my collection.  Thank you so much for such a touching story.  I loved every line.          Sincerely, Suzanne A.

Thank you for coming to Orlo Vista Elementary School  and presenting Archie’s Christmas Tale to our students. Archie’s Christmas Tale is a beautifully written and artfully illustrated story.                                           Kristin Johnson (Teacher, Orlo Vista Elementary
