Children’s Books

Proud to be part of Nick and Emerson’s Journey.


I PICKED HIM is the story of Nick Abbott and his dog, Emerson. Nick is a deaf man who lives in Gardiner, Maine. When he heard about a puppy at a local rescue who was also deaf as a result of neglect and illness, Nick went to see him.

What follows is a story of love and understanding. Nick adopted Emerson and taught him a version of sign language.

I’m very proud to have been asked to turn their story into a children’s book. This early-reader is appropriate for all ages. Parents and grandparents will enjoy reading it to small children, while 6-8 year-olds will enjoy learning to read it on their own.
