Comments made by a teacher from my facebook page

Starrsha Thompson
This is one of dad's best friends. He is a talented author, you should look into his books!!! I'm not a cat person, but his books are awesome! They are a must have for anyone with kids, elementary classrooms, or anyone who loves cats!

Don is a family friend, his books are more than great! I'm a teacher, but teach middle school, if I taught in an elementary school, I'd have a library full for my students!

Meet author Ess Duck. He's the author of the cat series Waji & I:
I am 50 years old. I wrote the 1st books in 2008. I have 5 for sale now. 2 that I'm working on right now and 2 more that just need a few photos to finish them, but now I'll have to wait until the temp. Goes back up next spring.
The title was not hard to come up with. It was my cat’s name that was the hard part. You see, Waji has 6 hearts in her coat but being a grown man I wasn't going to call her heart, so I asked someone to find out at her job how to say heart from the people she worked with as they came from all around the world and she came back with like 8 different names and I liked the sound of Wahji but I liked it spelled Waji and that is how she got her name. With the books being rhyming books I decided to make the title rhyme as well, and that is how they became Waji & I. That is (wa) with a short a and (ji) with a long I for (Waji & I).
For the rest of the title like (Waji & I / A Tail on the Trail) we were riding bike on a bike trail and Waji has a tail. With (Waji & I / This Is Waji) it tells all about Waji and the many things she can do. She can do more tricks then most dogs. (Waji & I / At Lake Calhoune), well that is where the story took place (Waji & I / Go Fishing).We went fishing and all my stories are true stories. In (Waji & I / Wild Rice Harvest) I go out picking wild rice while Waji goes and plays in the woods.
I self published my books because only one publisher would even talk to me since I am unknown. They will not even look at the books and it left me with no other options but to self publishes my books.
My books can be found at ( ), ( Waji & I / on Facebook ),( ) and at ( ). You can subscribe on any page on the blog or be a follower, on there and also facebook.
I am working on other books as well .I have 19 books written at this time I hope to finish this winter (Waji & I Go Camping, Fish for Lunch and Walk on Water). The price is from $8.25 to $9.25 and I am told by many that they have never seen books with such detail for children's books.

Happy Birthday Chuck!

Waji & I are sending out a birthday wish for my brother, Chuck that he has a very happy one and many more to come.

Downtown Des Moines

Yesterday Waji & I biked it into downtown Des Moines in order to get my cell phone working properly.

On our bike trip we encountered a hill or two that were a bit of workout for me. Although from the looks of Waji, you would think she is doing all the work.

Delayed in Des Moines Iowa.

The weather has not permitted us from moving onward as another storm approaches. The Saylorville reservoir here in central Iowa is expecting 38 ft. of water this week from the storms in Minnesota and Northern Iowa.

Waji and I are spending time with my brother, Chuck and his wife, Jennifer, 

Follow along with "The Cat Man" and Waji on their latest adventure.

This exciting bike adventure has started from Minnesota with the destination being Texas. 
It is to promote our books and raise money for the children's hospital.

Bad weather we have gone through.

This is some of the bad weather Waji and I went through in Carver County in Minnesota.

We can not seem to catch a break ... This photo was taken at my Aunt Rose's house.
