Please allow me to introduce you to….
My new (and only so far) childrens book featuring a cranky, grumbling, yet goodhearted hedgepig. (no, there is NOTHING autobiographical about this. Honestly….I have never, not once, been a hedgehog. heh…heh)
Followers of this blog, my previous books and other scribblings will know that this is a new type of writing for me…
But I was inspired by this little guy:
and I ran with it…and never looked back.
I approached a wonderful artist and showed her the outline of the story and she created the amazing images you will find in the book. Angelise Tomasino brought Mr. Fray to life and he is more than I had dreamed of. That’s what a brilliant artist can do for you. So applause please for the lady….she done good.
I know….I know….I know what you are thinking;
“Jaye…..your usual kind of poetry isn’t remotely child-friendly, how did this happen?”
And I will answer you honestly.

Maybe as I said before (or above) its was just time for…..
It happens! Sometimes it’s good to step out of the box. Sometimes you need to try, even if it isn’t comfortable. Sometimes you need to say….
WHOOPS! MAYBE NOT THAT DIFFERENT!!
Moving swiftly along….
Anyway, please get acquainted with Mr. Fray and his friends. I hope you like him.
Mr Fray is available at Amazons all over the world!
There will also be a giveaway soon….so watch this space!
