Rhonda mentioned, my latest endeavor and one I am most proud of as well, is the collaboration of writing a series of children’s books with 4 of my 5 daughters. It started from a vision Amber Jones, my 2nd oldest daughter had and sparked memories of many conversations I have heard as I spoke across the Country. These conversations were from prominent and everyday people who had experienced one or more of our book subjects as children and as a result, they have also experienced mild to severe mental health issues. Our books help with real issues children may experience and helps to bring awareness to avoid certain issues that could occur. This way we can be instrumental in helping to develop mentally healthy children in our society, that grow up to be mentally sound adults. Our Helpville Learner Series I is comprised of seven books. The subjects are Self-esteem, suicide and depression, homelessness, sexual assault, learning disabilities and other disabilities, bullying and lastly, physical abuse. We tackle these tough issues in a kid-friendly manner. Each book is designed where a child age 6-10 can read it. It is also designed for parents, teachers, counselors etc., to be interactive with the child while reading it to them or with them, no matter what the child's age is. We cater to families, schools, daycares, family oriented centers, foster care agencies, hospitals, other types of organizations and anyone who wants books that help children to live a happy, healthy life!

Heroes designed to help under privileged children cope with the issues in their neighborhoods. It would have trained them in drama which leads into drama therapy for healing. The second half of their program would have emphasized safety training, mannerisms and helping to beautify the community. The other, H.U.M.S. Hopegivers was geared towards women in those communities with programs to help with issues such as domestic violence, dating violence, rape etc. It was designed to be a project that trains and empowers these women to eventually run the program themselves.
