My book "The Legend of SqueezeboxSqueeze" has been officially released as of January 1st, 2019. While it is aimed at the middle-grade audience, adult readers have informed me that they really enjoyed it. The life-affirming story will warm the hearts of music lovers and musicians especially.  It is a tale of redemption in which an old Chinese accordion repairman/shopowner rises from a state of despair and hopelessness to help save the world--with the help of some unusual magical companions. The book borrows motifs from some of my favorite classics such as Pinocchio, Robin Hood, Toy Story, Back to the Future and Miracle on 34th Street. The one hundred and fifty pages include over forty of my illustrations in addition to the cover art. I do not think people will be disappointed in reading it, especially the dramatic and emotional ending. Please see any online book retailer or go to my publishers site - Written Dreams Publishing. Most bookstores can order it as well. Thanks!
