WILMINGTON, NC, April 10, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- While bullying is cruel in every form, perhaps nowhere is that more true than when the victim is a special needs child. And perhaps nobody knows this better than those who have worked daily with special needs kids. Award winning author and former Special Education teacher Jody Sharpe worked with special needs kids for many years and recently announced she will now bring her stories to life via a soon to be released book titled "The Angels On The Writers' Shoulder".
The new book follows her recently released children's book about angels, "When The Angel Sent Butterflies". The new book helps children understand that love from their parents and others surrounds them. Love conquers fear and believing that angels are near can help sweep any childhood fear away. This concept is presented in the book when Angel Ken sends Jones and Kate butterflies. The book, appropriate for ages 2 to 7, is now available at Amazon and Ingram.
Jody's works center on angels on earth and the expression of their love and protection through synchronicity. In a recent blog posts she related one of these events:
"In 'When The Angel Sent Butterflies', I decided to write my grandchildren as the characters," Sharpe wrote. "In the story little Kate is afraid of bees and Jones tells her how mommy says angels protect them. From his hands Angel Ken sends butterflies to them and Jones is delighted as one lights on his finger. Little Kate becomes unafraid when a butterfly lands on her shoulder and a bee passes by. The children realize butterflies and bees are their friends.
"Yet a most amazing serendipitous moment has occurred. Soon after reading my book, Jones was in the backyard and became afraid of a bee passing by just as little Kate was afraid in my storybook. Then another little miracle … a white butterfly fluttered by and Jones was not only thrilled but his fear left too. Was it just a coincidence?"
The full story is available at Sharpe's website in the 'Tuesdays With The Angels' section.
In Sharpe's highly acclaimed novels, the angels take on human form and interact with humanity in a variety of ways:
Town of Angels - It is angel vs. bully in the town of Mystic Bay, California, where a well kept secret lies. Angels live as humans there. After angels appeared to three children all was blissful in the town full of psychics, and ordinary folk. But as a bully, Klaus Waxman, comes to town, Angel Ken Leighton, a storeowner, must carefully guide his flock of humans not to give to in to the bully's efforts. As Klaus opens a store mocking the resident angels sightings, Angel Ken guides psychic Justine Greer and her family to thwart his efforts. And with the help of the indomitable oldest psychic in town, Madam Norma, the bully meets his match with soft voices and intuitive minds…
To Catch An Angel - Jody is also the author of 'To Catch An Angel', written in memory of her late husband Steve. In 'To Catch An Angel', miracles happen in Mystic Bay, California, the town with the psychic and angel vibe. Angels are calling. Psychic Maggie Malone returns home to find she's swept up in the miracle of it all. She can't imagine why her mother left or who her father might be. But these questions pale in comparison to the wonder of the angels. Maggie meets writer, Noah Greenstreet. They realize they've met before, but where? Maggie and Noah embark on a journey to find our world is all awash with angels.
The Angel's Daughter - A secret lies in Mystic Bay, California and only two people know it. First there's Hannah, a tender curly headed half Angel Then there's her father, Gabe, an effervescent, teddy bear of a full-blooded angel. And it's up to Hannah to keep the secret safe but she's made a colossal mistake telling her ex-boyfriend and writing professor, Sam Blakely. Now he's written a book exposing the secret to the world.
