The Best Children's Short Story



This week, I published The Adventures of Cee Lo The Duck. It's a children's short story that features Cee Lo, features a young duck who is accidentally placed on a farm with chickens. Slowly, Cee Lo adjusts to life on a farm, but doesn’t feel he fits in. During a BIG twist, Cee Lo has to use his special talents –something all of the other chickens are afraid to do, to help save the farm!








The kid’s story finds a balance between inspiring its readers and keeping children engaged. It teaches timeless lessons about fitting in, believing in oneself and accepting others for their unique and special talents.

The book is available for electronic download on Amazon's Kindle.

Today you can get it for FREE! Enjoy!

2014 Mark Tiner Foundation Scholarship

2014 Mark Tiner Foundation Scholarship Recipient

Some of you may not know, but my brother, Mark Tiner passed away 10 years ago. Shortly after he passed away, I organized some fundraisers to help create memorial scholarships in his honor. Each year a memorial scholarship and volleyball spirit award is awarded at Laguna Beach High School in his honor.

Additionally, since 2006 a financial needs scholarship is awarded to a graduating high school senior from Orange County, CA. It’s a rewarding and bittersweet way to pay it forward and continue Mark’s name.

Last month, My fiance and I presented the financial needs scholarship to a graduating high school senior from Savanna High School in Anaheim.

Paying it forward and treating each day as a gift is one of the biggest lessons that I've learned from it all.
