Introducing Ramsey P. Heaton, future billionaire
As a parent of young kids, every night requires a bedtime story. It’s a special time of connection, filled with imagination. Dinosaurs, princesses, impossible adventures and gravity-defying feats are the norm. And that’s before the Bible story.
But I have a confession.
Sometimes I bring performances that could garner Oscar nominations. My heart is all-in. And sometimes I’m like Calvin’s dad from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes dreading another reading of Hamster Huey and the Gooey Kablooie.
Can anyone relate?
I decided to write the kind of book I want to read to my kids at night. I’m thrilled to share POPCORN HELMET with you— the first in a series of books featuring Ramsey P. Heaton, future billionaire.
I teamed up with illustrator J.E. Serait, whose beautifully unique artwork you've seen on my Substack, to create the memorable character and story.
When Ms. Spickle challenges the class to come up with an idea that will change the world, Ramsey P. Heaton finally has a billion-dollar concept.
But will it earn him a passing grade? And, more importantly, does Ramsey bring enough butter?

So if you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, a babysitter, godparent, friend of families with kids, teacher or school leader, this book is for you and a great gift for someone in your life.
