The original first edition Maurice & Gaston sold for $1.25 when first published in 1977.Within a few short years, reports of  copies selling for $150  were heard. With less than a dozen original first edition copies on hand...I wouldn't take $1000 a copy! This is a story about two friendswho live in the swamp and one day venture too far from home only to find more trouble than expected!   32 pages, illustrated. ISBN: 0-931108-00-4

T-BOY THE LITTLE CAJUN   
When I was about 15, I would drive to Lake Dauterive early in the morning to operate the boat for my grandfather and help run his fishing nets or harvest Spanish moss. What an adventure it was each time we sped across the open waters of the lake in the early morning hours. And what a rush to pull in so many big fish that flopped around in our boat causing so much excitement that I have never fogotten!  I didn't realize at the time "life" was allowing me to experience the last generation of French Speaking Cajuns who lived off the land.
Book No. 3  
T-BOY & THE TRIAL FOR LIFE    
A homework assignment back in the 7th grade, which resulted in an  A-minus, gave me inspiration to share this story with thousands of kids over the last 30 years. Because my mother saved the story in a shoe box in her closet, years later I was able to publish it in 1977. Since we lived on the bayou, I fished just about everyday after school and weekends. Truth is, I really did get pulled under water by a big catfish and I really was on trial for my life! 32 pages, illustrated. ISBN: 0-931108-02-0
