****EXTRA****My 1976 Children's Book--HARLEN AND MURD
Okay, so I needed a little work with names. HARLEN AND MURD was the result of our assignment to write a children's book in Creative Writing in 1976. The illustrations were rather obviously comic book-inspired and looking at them now makes me wish I had tried just a little harder. I see talent but I never really did anything with it. As for the writing, my Junior English teacher, Mr. Spurlock, wrote, "Very imaginative and it teaches a good lesson, too. I like your illustrations."
