The Littlest Firefly


The newest release from Linda Fogarty tells the story of a tiny glowworm who discovers that she has become a firefly, the smallest firefly around.  She is dedicated to sharing uplifting and encouraging stories to inspire children to shine brightly and find their place in the world.



A Moose on the Loose


Linda Fogarty has unleashed her creativity after toiling for years in the world of law.  In her first published book, A Moose on the Loose, she shares the notion that Santa Claus and his team are dedicated to helping children try to Do Good all through the year – not only at Christmas.  Her account was inspired in large part by the notes of encouragement and guidance her four children have received from Santa as they have grown over the years.
