THE WHALE WHO WANTED TO BE SMALL and THE GOODNIGHT GECKO were both top sellers in Hawaii ~ and for years these two titles along with The Wonderful Journey, Gecko Hide and Seek, The Shark Who Learned a Lesson and The Brave Little Turtle  ~ have been amongst the top 5 best selling children’s books in Hawaii.

book-pic3Gill’s stories either have an uplifting moral or they are written in poetic form. HAPPY AS A DOLPHIN, GECKO HIDE and SEEK and Gill’s newest book THE RAINBOW MERMAIDS OF HAWAII are examples of lively verse which is especially attractive to Preschoolers. For children in Grades K – 2nd Grade, Gill’s stories are more detailed and informative, and most of her books carry a “Did You Know?” on the back cover. Gill was an Elementary School teacher so “…I like my books to inform, as well as entertain.”
