WILMINGTON, NC, April 16, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Award winning author Jody Sharpe will appear with Larry Battson, 'The Animal Guy', on his show on Facebook Live on April 17, 2021. Battson has appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom with Jim Fowler. For 41 years Larry Battson has been visiting schools with his collection of wild animals. Joined by his wife Cheryl, the two now travel across the country sharing the wonders of the natural world.
"I am thrilled to be a guest on Larry Battson Live," Sharpe said. "I admire Larry and Cheryl's dedication to wildlife education for children. They are truly doing the work of angels."
Sharpe has also announced a new release in time for Christmas, 2021. The new book, 'Town of Angels Christmas', features the same town and many of the characters from her previous book, 'Town of Angels'. Sharpe has interacted directly with angels and it has changed her life. Her mission in life is to offer us proof of the existence of angels. She does this through her books, her blog and now through videos via her Youtube channel.
In announcing the new book, Sharpe stated, "I am writing the 4th in the Mystic Bay Series. It will include not only the theme of racism and child abuse but of animal abuse, including the abuse of horses, in our country. These are important issues that need voicing not only in the news, but also in fiction, from an angels' perspective."
In addition, Jody recently posted a new video to her Youtube channel, titled 'Jody Sharpe, Angels in Real Life'. Her video channel features angel stories and stories from her experience working with special needs children. In her videos, she concentrates on love and kindness, help from the angels, and offers viewers an opportunity to take a break from all the negativity found in the news.
One of Jody's stories was recently published in a book in the Chicken Soup For The Soul series, 'Listen To Your Dreams'. As a result, she was mentioned in a recent podcast, 'Listen to Your Dreams – Six Ways You Can Use Your Dreams for Personal Transformation, Chicken Soup for the Soul with Amy Newmark Apple Podcasts'. More information is available at her website at http://jodysharpe.com.
Jody spreads her messages about angels in a number of ways. She has written a series of books about real life angels in everyday situations. She has written a children's book about angels interacting with children. Her latest book, 'Special Needs Children, The Angels On My Shoulder', centers on special needs children. She also accepts angels stories from the public for the 'Tuesdays With The Angels' section of her blog. Her video channel brings all of this together, offering segments on all of these topics. One topic of special interest is bullying, specifically as it relates to special needs children.
'Special Needs Children, The Angels On My Shoulder' is a memoir based on her twenty-five years teaching children with special needs. The book placed second in the National Federation Of Press Women's At-Large Communication contest. The book is as entertaining as it is illuminating. It's a love story about the special students and others who over the years graced her life with just that, their grace.
With hearts of angels and challenges to face, the children took Sharpe along their journeys and inspired her own life's journey of self-discovery. When sorrow came, their kindness helped her through. The synchronicity of events from high school to retirement changed her life for the better, turning her face toward heaven.
One Amazon review stated, "This book should be required reading for all teaching students; not just special needs teachers. This book has so much value in demonstrating the positive affects that teachers can have on students, and also the blessings that students provide to their teachers. It would show new teachers personal benefits which they may have not yet realized. It is heart-warming and adorable.; absolutely enjoyable for everyone. It is short, but effective, and I am sure that many other teachers have examples they could add . . ."
'Special Needs Children' 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.
On the 'Tuesdays With The Angels' section of her site, Sharpe presents stories of real life encounters with angels. The stories are available at Sharpe's website at http://www.jodysharpe.com.

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.
