Resources for Teachers & Book Clubs

This section is dedicated to homeschooling parents, teachers, and book clubs. Fiction has a unique way of teaching us about other people and helping us gain empathy and otherwise hard-to-grasp ideas. While all my stories are written to entertain, each one contains elements of faith, truth, and life lessons weaved into the plot. The themes and age appropriateness of the books are listed here, along with book club discussion guides and home school/class study guides.

Feel free to download whatever is useful to you.

Discounts are also available for bulk book purchases. Scroll down for more information.

If there is anything else you'd like from me, as the author, let me know and I'll see what I can do!
