Michael "Hooley" Hughes was a member of the military, serving in the U.S. Navy. Now, he's a children's author. On today's show, he returns for a second appearance to talk about his new book, "Farmer Joe and the Dancing Crow".
"After a great deal of encouragement from one of my college professors, I recently published my first rhyming children's picture book under the pen name of M.R. Hooley," explained Hughes. "Growing up a Dr. Seuss fan and reading often to my two sons as they grew, I began writing my own rhyming stories nearly 20 years ago. After having done so for a few years, I began submitting the stories to publishers," said Hughes.
"Farmer Joe and the Dancing Crow" follows Professor Hooley's first book, "Penelope Skunk Has Junk in Her Trunk!"
