St. Picklas will be a available for free ebook download 24-26 December! Tell your friends!
I have finished writing and illustrating a Children’s Christmas book called The Tale of St. Picklas and now I need to get it published.
I launched a kickstater crowdfunding project to help me achieve the goal of raising enough money to get a few dozen copies printed.
My goal is 750.00 and I am asking for your help by reviewing the project and sharing it with your friends and family members. I’m not asking for free money, every pledge has a reward (ie; books, stickers) and you can see them all listed on the project’s page.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my book and have a Merry Christmas!
I plan on updating my followers and donors on a regular basis as the project progresses. Please check back from time to time to see what’s new!
P.S. Please share with your friends, you might not be interested but maybe one of them could help!
It’s time again to make them cry, little children shield their eyes. Zombies, ghosts, decayed remains. Halloween is here again!
My Son Ian loves Jake and The Never Land Pirates, so I made him some personalized Pirates to hang on his wall… One of Jake himself and a personalized picture of Ian the Never Land Pirate!
In a few weeks I will be relaunching a re-vamped kickstarter project to get The Tale of St. Picklas funded. I invite you to continue to follow the progress of St. Picklas, please fill out the form below and stay informed of St. Picklas’ Progress. I will do my best to keep the page updated. Please share with your friends. Remember, St. Picklas is WATCHING, even as you dream!As always, The Tale of St. Picklas is available for kindle download here: The Tale of St. Picklas And be sure to check out the newly launched stpicklas.com

Happy Pioneer Day!
My third and final tribute for Pioneer Day is a poster of my Great ++++ Grandfather Lewis Barney. Lewis Barney was kind of like the Forest Gump of early Mormon History, in the sense that he seemed to be present at most famous Mormon events. He knew Joseph Smith and the early church leaders personally and was one of the members of the first wagon train to arrive in Salt Lake City with Brigham Young. Not only was he a member of the original party but he may have been the first man in the Salt Lake Valley. Here is a short excerpt from his journal:“At the mouth of the Canyon it became very rocky, which delayed the camp one day. I wishing to see the Great Salt Lake Valley worked my way down the creek through the brush, and entered the Valley. I went on a little raise of ground, cast my eyes over the valley, and saw the Great Salt Lake glistening in the distance. I then returned to camp.”
Another fun fact about Lewis Barney is that apparently he and Porter Rockwell had a small rivalry and Porter didn’t like him much. Here’s a great article from the Salt Lake Tribune recounting their relationship:
