As a fluid group of writers, The Peacock Writers have four collections of children stories, each having three forms for your convenience. Our e-book is for the 'on the go' reading, the plain text for the older child, and the special illustrated edition for the younger child, and for the child that lives on in all of us.
The pages on the site will give you our entire mission while introducing you to our generous authors, and samplings of their work that raise money for children charities.
We write for a Spring/Summer and a Fall/Winter issue, and all involved with the writing and production of these editions have demanding schedules, yet give their time and expertise to help children and for that we are pleased this group was birthed during the winter of 2011.
Our first book is entitled A Whimsical Holiday for Children: To benefit children’s charities
I would like to share a little of my story: The More, The Merrier which features the characters from the series, The Chronicles of The K-9 Boys and Girls on Locust Street, a pack of rescued dogs whose mission is to promote compassionate appreciation for animals.
It was a mere week before Christmas as Mandy and her Pack lay sleeping in their home on Locus Street... while up in the North Pole, Santa goes about making Mandy’s dream, a reality.
"Finally, they're all asleep. It'll be a couple of hours before we reach our first center for pickup. If there aren't too many to pick up, we could let them sleep for a bit longer."
"Are we going to take them all or only the ones with problems? You know some people only want the perfect ones, Pariel."
"I know, my sweet Pinde, but Mandy's dream is about the 'dinged' ones this year. Don't worry, there will be more than enough to go around. Unfortunately, there always is more than enough. Just relax, the reindeer know where they're going.
If you want to nap too, while the little ones are snoozing, here's your chance." Pinde stays awake as their sleigh weaves the winds in the ways of heaven, trailed... by hundreds of sleighs dotting the air between the sparkling night lights of the stars.
"Okay, everyone, wake up. We've got a load and half here to pick up and get back to Santa." As all his darlings rub their eyes, Pariel continues, "Now, kids, I want you to be quiet. Mama says you are like that sometimes, though I've yet to see it, so now it is time to show me, because our pickups will be scared and need you to be gentle. Noises will scare them. And another thing, these all have homes already so no, you can't keep them."
"Yes, Papa. We know how to touch gently and speak softly. We promise." said the children, very, very quietly.
Night after night, for a week, until Christmas Eve finally arrived - when they turn back to Santa with their last precious load, if you had looked just right, at just the right time, you might have seen that caring caravan crossing the quiet heavens.
Christmas has come early to some of the children expecting their gift. Each night, when the Serago family along with the hundreds of other Elfin families returned to the North Pole, they found Santa awaiting them. He took each load and fit it into his magic sleigh. It looked just like any of the other transports the elves used but its magic was that it could easily and comfortably fit everything inside - from the hundreds of regular sleighs that arrived! Hundreds... ... to their forever homes, well, forever!
