Below is a list of some of my published Kindle ebooks. The entire series Dolls without Frontiers contains 20 titles from different corners of the world. I plan to have them published during 2018-2021. Printed editions will also become available.
All books are lavishly illustrated by international artists. In each book a doll tells the story in English and in its mother tongue. The dolls are photographed by me and I call them my Cultural Ambassadors.
I and other readers would be thrilled if you would like to write a review! Like all authors, I need your feedback to write better books. You can find the books here on Amazon .
