Danny the Dragon author
I was honored and touched by the review of the first book in my children’s book series, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, by book critic Gerardine Baugh of the Chicago Examiner. She had nothing but praise for my story, its themes, and the award-winning illustrations by Aija Jasuna.
Among her many kind words, Ms. Baugh wrote, “Each time a child opens this book they will see something to count, or laugh over…I recommend this book as a birthday or holiday gift, or just a special bedtime gift. What a sweet way to lull your child to sleep.”

We had such a great time at the Burbank Book Festival! It was great to connect with the authors and readers in Burbank and we were received.

If you have celiac disease like me, you’re probably aware of the abundance of resource guides available on the market. Many of these have proved to be invaluable to the celiac community, but there remains a segment of the celiac population who haven’t been able to benefit as we have from such books—children. Thanks to Caryn Talty, a former schoolteacher living in Chicago, celiac kids now have not only an informative resource, but a creative and entertaining one at that—Cilie Yack is Under Attack! This fictional book follows the adventures of the Irish boy Cilie Yack, who experiences an array of misadventures before being diagnosed with celiac disease and becoming a young, gluten-free master chef.
