Hop Along with The Palace Rat Blog Tour

Updated: Sep 5

We are just one day away from the official birthday of Henri, the Palace Rat and his treasured tale! I hope you will celebrate with me by inviting Henri into your home! Click the Teal Title to buy.

The idea for The Palace Rat was conceived and written while on a carousel tour of France with my family (my mother, father and son) in 1997. In my interviews, I share bits and pieces of the evolution of this idea and my journey, as well as writing tips and inspirations.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to these wonderful bloggers and friends who were kind enough to celebrate with me and share Henri's journey. Be sure to comment and show these bloggers some love.
