Preorder: “Call Your Mother”

Call Your Mother Picture Book

“Call Your Mother” celebrates all the moments when kids rely on their mothers, from infancy to when they are parents themselves. This book is inspired by my own changing relationship with my mother when I became a parent–and by my grandpa’s continuous reminders to my dad–“Carl, call your mother!” It will be published by Familius in February 2024 and is illustrated by Vivian Mineker. You are never too old to need your mother. The perfect gift for the mothers or grandmothers in your life who always answer the call!

I’m excited to offer signed copies! To get your books signed, preorder from my local bookstore in Baltimore, The Ivy Bookshop. In your order comments, write the name(s) you’d like me to sign and anything else you’d like me to know. If you’d like to order other books by me to be shipped at the same time, I can sign those too! Just write a note about it in the order comments.

I will also be at Park Books in Severna Park on May 4th and can sign books then (best to plan for pick up as shipping may not make it before Mother’s Day).

You can also order from your local bookstore (your best bet is to call or order online).
