  1. I just ordered a paperback of Josiah’s book! I am also a homeschooling mama of four boys, and I can’t wait to read it with them and say, “Look what homeschooling can do!”

    1. aww, I love that! I hope they really enjoy it! 🙂 Thanks so much for your support! aloha-

  2. I ordered this in paperback as a Christmas gift for my middle son. He has an amazing imagination, loves to write stories, and created an imaginary world a few years ago that has provided hours of entertainment for his two brothers and younger sister. He’s 11, so I hope this will encourage him to keep his imagination strong and keep writing those stories!

    1. Kate (sorry, I’m just now catching my breath and responding to comments… ;)) Just wanted to thank you so much for ordering Sub-Marine. I hope this encourages your son’s imagination! Please let us know what you think of it once he’s read it! Much aloha-

    I am a middle school teacher in La Jolla California. I also run a surf school in the summer called Menehune Surf. Growing up in Santa Barbara I always dreamed of an underwater room or hotel. Some years ago I read that there is sort of kind of place I dreamed of in Florida near Key Largo however I’ve never seen it. I have seen Proto types of amazing rooms with glass all around under the water and can just imagine Imagine laying in bed watching the fish swim by.
    As a teacher and a parent I’m very proud of your effort as I know your amazing mom is also.
    Congratulations on completing this endeavor and good luck with future success. All the best, Mark Heinze
