Hello and welcome to my blog.
Let me introduce myself first, my name is Kimberley Paterson and I have just recently published my first book for children entitled “Frankie the Ferret”.
I was born in Uxbridge, Ontario, a small rural farming town about one hour north of Toronto and have remained very close by for the past 40 years in Claremont with my spouse Doug, our chocolate lab Molly along with two cats, Kitty and Tobey. My children live close by as well, my daughter Melanie, her spouse James and their three children, Bryce, Ainsley and Preston as well as my son Shayne, his spouse Natasha and their son Colby.
Over the years, we have had quite a menagerie of family pets with Frankie being one of the most entertaining furry little creatures you could ever meet!
This book has been in the works for approximately 15 years and is dedicated to the memory of Frankie, a very cherished member of our family for nine years. After I became a grandmother, I thought it would be a great idea to share Frankie with my grandchildren since they would never have a chance to meet and love him like we did.
My lifelong dream has been to write a children’s book, to not only entertain children but to enrich their lives. I believe that books will stimulate young minds, provide development by learning new things, and provide relaxation so that they too can provide relieve from stress as they grow older, they can learn so much.
Next time, as outlined in the book, I will provide some details to those Frankie adventures!
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I appreciate all of the love and support that has come my way from family and friends since the release of Frankie the Ferret!
