Scheduled for release September 2021.

Have you ever tried teeing off in front of a crowd of spectators? Conquering the first-tee jitters is a challenge faced by many golfers. Birdie is a talented young golfer when playing alone or with her father. But when Birdie tees off in front of a crowd, she suffers from the first-tee jitters and misses the golf ball. With the help of a dog named Chip, Birdie overcomes her fear of teeing off in front of a crowd. A Golf Ball in Her Shoe is a genuinely heartwarming story about a girl and a dog who help each other overcome their obstacles.


For my husband, Eric, and Coco. Thank you both for inspiring this story.

To Wendy Leach, showcased illustrator and member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Thank you for sharing your creative talent and bringing Birdie and Chip to life.
