Children's Fiction

A few years ago when I was in the middle of writing a bit of a gritty manuscript, I needed to do something as a pick me up. My editor suggested I write something completely different, so I wrote a children's book called, "Gordo and Chico: An Unexpected Friendship". When he read the story, he immediately said, "This is what we are going to publish!" 

It was such a fun little sidetrack, that I'm proud to say more will be on the way.

I write under the name, Elizabeth Hope, for children's fiction.

If you want your children to be intelligent read them fairytales."

Albert Einstein


Gordo and Chico:

An Unexpected Friendship

When Gordo, a gopher—or so he thinks—embarks on an epic journey to the National Park to flee the destruction of his home, he is joined by his newfound friend Chico, a feisty caterpillar, who is en route to Mexico to find his long-lost family.


Along the way, they encounter odd creatures, make new friends, and escape from all sorts of dangers. And in the end, they make the greatest discovery of all, that their friendship is beyond appearances and comes straight from their hearts.
