Author Biography

My wife and I write and illustrate our e-books together.

Jackie began writing poetry and children's stories in 1999. Whenever she needs a fresh idea we work on the ideas together. She also gives me the ideas of what she is looking for in the illustrations for each e-book and I draw the images on an electronic tablet.

Jackie wrote on her school newspaper and at a summer camp where she was the editor and writer for the daily posts as well as the camp final. She was also a member of an Explorer post for journalism. She won her first essay contest in 1998 for our local newspaper. She received first place for this essay. She enjoys photography, reading and going for walks in local parks and nature centers.

I began writing in high school for our school newspaper and magazine. I also wrote for the school staff for three years. I also enjoy reading, collecting rare books and advance reader copies. When I am not reading I also enjoy watching movies, photography and going for walks in parks and nature centers.

We received a Silver Award from Readers Favorite for our first e-book entitled "Peaches! Peaches!" "Hide! Hide!" is the third book in this series.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

"Hide! Hide!" is the third book in Scott Ferrell’s series of e-reader books for children. This time we follow Mr. Marceau’s favorite friends, Springer Spaniel Gaston and Gregorie the parrot in an interesting game of hide and seek. Only Gregorie takes this game on a unique twist throughout the neighborhood, getting everyone involved. I love the sweet friendship between Gaston and Gregorie. Seeing a dog walking around with a little bird on his back just gives you that warm, fuzzy, homey feeling. I really like the way the author includes all of the neighbors into the actions and fun of these precious animals, giving the feeling of a wonderful, nice, safe neighborhood.

"Hide! Hide!" is a sweet little story written and illustrated especially for e-readers. The illustrations are simple, so the book will not take a lot of space on your readers, but yet these colorful and adorable pictures are detailed enough to capture the attention of your young child. My 3 and a half year old niece loves all three of Scott Ferrell’s books, and continually asks me to read about Gaston and Gregorie. And really, she loves looking at the pictures and making up her own story to read to me. I really think "Hide! Hide!" is at the top of her list because she thinks it is so much fun! Abilene and I highly recommend that you start your child out early with your e-reader and download "Hide! Hide!" immediately. And while you are at it, go ahead and grab "Peaches! Peaches!" and "Sing! Sing!" I know you will not be disappointed with these precious little books.

I think Joy did a wonderful job with our latest review. I like knowing that her 3 year old niece niece enjoys the e-book enough to want to read it over and over. By knowing that Joy's 3 year old niece really likes the e-book then I know I have done a good job for the preschool age.

I really like the way she describes the parts of the e-book that she enjoys and she is so enthusiastic in her reviews that I am encouraged to keep writing.

Joy is just such a delight to work with.
