"I'm tired of telling Batman stories," I told my little brother.
"Just this once, can I tell you The Three Little Pigs?"

"No," he snapped.
"There's no bad guys in it."
"I like bad guys."

So much for you, Big Bad Wolf.

I Gave My Mom a Castle is a collection of poems about giving and receiving. Most are prose poems, mini stories, told by a wide cast of characters from toddlers to teens with an adult or two thrown in for good measure.
CM Magazine - September 5, 2003
"There are surprises to be discovered in this book, and there seems to be something for everyone to relate to."
