Welcome, I'm delighted you've come to learn about my picture-storybooks for grown-ups. Why this story? We've all taken this jouney, but who can remember?

Caleb tells us his story before memory is lost. His story, like ours, began outside of time and space and body. He journeys all the way from a spiritual plane far from ordinary experience, to conception, through cellular and fetal development, then ends with his birth. He narrates this story of changes, love and even his fears, through poetic verse in various forms, with accurate information, and accompanied by twelve enchanting illustrations painted by the author.

For anyone of us who has ever been a mom, is expecting to be a mom, or loves someone who is; for anyone who has ever had a mom – or knows someone who has – let this little book transport us back to our beginnings and remind us all of our divine humanity. Read more

Excerpt from the Book

There is a place we nearly know
It lies between Heaven and Earth
When bodies drop, it’s where we go
And where we wait before birth
