Author Cheryl Ramirez Spotlighted!

                       

One Good Redneck Mama

One Good Redneck Mama - A humorous look at stupid dogs, duct tape, and psycho drama queens in the heart of Texas. Cheryl takes the reader deep into the Texas Big Country to explore the wild side of raising kids, wrangling rattle snakes and finding the happy in everyday life.

"Fair warning to my friends and neighbors: You know I have never been the Prim & Proper Southern Lady. I'm more of a Practical Country Girl. And by "practical" I mean cuss like a sailor when the situation calls for it but never use God's name to cuss and generally refrain from dropping the f-bomb. That bomb is dropped once in this book but it wasn't me who said it; it was the dog."

Bobby’s Dove by author Matthew Hamilton and illustrator Cheryl Ramirez

Bobby’s Dove is a poem that is transferred to book form and is easily read to children or for children who are just learning to read. The book fits into any family library, public library or church library.

Bobby’s Dove teaches children, in a warm and fun way, that God loves them. The pictures are warm and descriptive. Younger age children love to find the cat and the puppy which appears in most of the pictures. The rhythm of the poem is fun to read out loud.

The hero of the story, Bobby looks a tad different in some of the pictures as this is the illustrator’s first book but this one aspect does not distract from the story or the message and young readers will be too busy looking for the cat or puppy to notice!

The author, Matt Hamilton lives in Ft. Worth, Texas and is married with children. This is his first book dedicated lovingly to his children.

The Illustrator, Cheryl Ramirez, lives in Cisco, Texas and is married with children.
