Introducing Susan VanDomelen, author of Baby Rowdy’s New Shoes

“I broke my right ankle and was laid up for several months, which left me with a lot of down time. I have a very small miniature horse that is very cute and loving, so I decided to write a children’s book about him. I started searching the Web and discovered Outskirts Press Publishing. Bingo! They sounded like an exceptional Publishing Company and true to their word, they never let me down. They guided me all the way through from A to Z. I’m now holding my book in my hands. Being that it was my 1st endeavor doing anything like this, I was very apprehensive, but the people I worked with guided me expertly all the way to completion. They returned every call I made to them and every E-mail I made to them within a 24 hour period from my Author Representative to my Publishing Consultant and Production Manager. I want to congratulate you all for an outstanding job, so much so I’m starting another book about Rowdy called “Rowdy’s Playground” knowing again, I will receive excellence from Outskirts Press.”

This story is about the life of a young man, named Jim Baxter who is injured in the War and tired of seeing the killing decides to go to medical school and become a doctor to serve his fellow man. While in school he suffers a life threatening accident that leaves him scarred and deformed. Ashamed of his appearance, he decides to live on the island of Dominica, where he hopes that no one will care about his appearance. In his quest to still practice medicine, he devotes himself to the Carib Indians, a native people that live on the tiny island. As the story unfolds, Jim touches the lives of others, as his life is touched by the hand of God.

Ed Robinette has done an excellent job with sharp visuals to bring the reader right into the story. In no time you are there following the characters as they move around the island. Robinette has that rare ability to make a movie inside the head of any reader. I loved the fact that it was so easy and fun to read. I am sure he will have many more as he clearly love to tell a story.  -Lantz Powell. President Chattanooga Writers Guild
