A NEW BOOK FROM HOUTS & HOME
I started writing years ago when my daughters were young. While I have had success publishing, there were a few manuscripts I loved that were not being offered publishing contracts. So, in 2011, I started my own small publishing company using my last name, Houts & Home Publications LLC. I've published a cookbook, picture book I wrote with my daughter, and a book of my mom's poetry. This month I'm releasing my talented, artistic cousin, Lester's, first picture book. Lester is more like an uncle than a cousin because he is older than my mother. Lester is a birder, that's a birdwatcher who travels to see birds. He's traveled all over the world and has seen hundreds of birds. As an artist, he draws the birds he has spotted.
Lester Feldman, the author and illustrator, has been a Birder since he was Hope's age. He has seen 650 plus bird species in North America where he prefers to "Bird." A retired Advertising Art Director, he now birds mainly from the windows of his house.
Bernice, Lester's wife of 70 years, created the typography for this book. Lester refers to Bernice as his "Creative Director."

I'll close with a bird quote. Take care and be safe until next time!
“You cannot fly like an eagle with the wings of a wren.”
Author and ornithologist William Henry Hudson
