Kai: I just finished my very first non-fiction book! The Art of Florida Birdwatching.
Being a bird watcher all my life, I knew I wanted to create a work of non-fiction themed around my knowledge and experience. In addition to the information, I was still able to utilize my more aesthetic side, using art and photography as the pictures.
This book features over 30 species of birds that can be found right here in Florida, and includes an artistic depiction, fun facts about the bird, and stories about my personal encounters. Many were photographed at Grand Lagoon State Park, Myakka River State Park and Wakulla Springs State Park.
I really hope you enjoy this book, as it is one I am quite proud of. These are the wild birds I know best, many of which are quite dear to me. If you are interested in birds, or are just getting to know them, I hope you’ll take a look at this book and be inspired to continue your birding journey!
Kai: Because of Hades is a rhyming short-story about a young man called Noble whom loses his friend in battle. While Noble lives a civilian life, he tries to cope and find meaning in his everyday strife, which leads to an adventure; out of the shabby side of town, and into the wild, with his remaining friends in tow. When Buttercup perishes at the hand of a lion in the forest, Noble seeks to exterminate it, but he is then hunted down by it’s offspring – three evil kittens!
Each “chapter” of this poetry novel is its’ own poem, with themes of romance, adventure/action, abstract, and even a little crude humor. Although I’m only putting this story out now, I actually wrote it way back in 2014, as a poetic derivative of one of my many novels-in-progress. All of my watercolor artwork for this book was digitally placed and enhanced by Avery.
Please enjoy, as it is one of my more interesting pieces!
Arianna: We’re excited to present you with a brand new collection of dark and spooky poetry, just in time for Halloween!
This is the second book I have put together doing all of the art digitally. I like the atmosphere I was able to create to accompany the poems that Kai and I wrote. I hope you enjoy this eerie collection of poetry!
“Color’s Second Wind” is a sequel to “Thinking in Rainbows.” Poetry and art is by both myself and Arianna. It is a mash-up of poems done with purpose, and inspired by whacky dreams. The Artwork is of course, some of our most colorful! Please Enjoy! -Kai
The Judge of Ivory follows a young, wild woman’s journey through a fantasy world torn between civilization, Nature, magic, and impending science – The overthrown Kingdom has found a way to manipulate the outcome of the future! When Dazzle and her friends are whisked away by a band of mysterious gypsies to save “feral” kind from the Kingdom, Dazzle finds out that she is more powerful than she ever believed possible… But what is this special power she discovers?
The Party Animals of Abundance Valley is a short and sweet kid’s book I wrote and illustrated with Arianna. This book is a little different than our more cartoon-style books, as I did black water color pictures, which Arianna finished off with an elegant dusting of colored pencil. I think it gives the artwork a little bit more of a sophisticated tone, which helps to match the moral of the story.
What happens when the party animals of Abundance Valley get a little too crazy? Find out in our newest book!
Here is a new poetry collection from Arianna and I. It contains poems and art from the both of us, including art works we collaborated on. This first “Rainbow” titled poetry collection is the first installment of a colorful series, so if you like the art from this book, there is more to come! I have so far compiled three books for this series, but for now, enjoy “Thinking In Rainbows”.
For Valentine’s Day this year, I present a book of poetry written by Kai and me. The theme being love, it covers not only romantic love, but love in all other forms as well.
I gave it the title “The Unlocking Of The Heart”after the very last poem in the book. That poem was written several years ago, but I feel it’s story and emotion has become more important to me, hence I gave it’s name to the book itself.
I truly hope you enjoy reading these poems, and that they remind and reveal to you the many faces and forms of love. And knowing that in the end, the most important thing we can give this world is the unlocking of our own hearts. For once we can do this, who knows what is possible?
