…there are none in THIS BOOK either.

Trust me.

Buy the book and you can see for yourself.

It will be released in German by NordSüd Verlag (NorthSouth Books) on August 17, 2023. The English version will follow on March 5, 2024.

Whew! Now that I’ve stopped dancing around the house and have had a chance to catch my breath…


HERE is a sneak peak of my debut picture book in the publisher’s 2023 fall catalogue. While you’re there, I suggest you take a moment and view all NordSüd’s wonderful titles:

THERE ARE NO DRAGONS IN THIS BOOK is on pages 17-18/99  Click on the eyeglasses in the lower left-hand corner and you will see more of Carla Haslbauer’s fun, unique, and stunning illustrations. They’re brilliant!

Take a look at this…it’s obvious there are no dragons in this book, right?

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes one to raise a children’s book as well. Applause and ❤ lichen Dank to everyone at NordSüd Verlag that has had a hand in the nurturing and birth of our book baby :

Naomi Wolter and Elena Rittinghausen – editors NordSüd, Switzerland
Beth Terrill – editor NorthSouth Books, US
Theresa Gamper – design
+ all the unknowns who have sprinkled their fairy dust on this project

Last, but very much not least, ❤ felt thanks to my patient, tenacious agent Stephen Fraser of the Jennifer Di Chiara Literary Agency, who has been submitting my children’s book manuscripts for more years than you can count on one hand…

Thank you dear reader too…
for your support these many years or for however brief a time
you’ve been visiting me here

Be Well

P.S.   ES GIBT KEINE DRACHEN IN DIESEM BUCH may be pre-ordered right now HERE or HERE or HERE (just to name a few). When it’s released on August 17, 2023 I’m sure your favorite bookstore will carry it or be happy to order it for you as well.
