Where There's Trouble There's Hope
June 1, 2016
Hosted by Karen Leavitt
My featured guests are Sheila Duncan and Melanie Fleming, creating a business and bringing an idea to life is a labor of love. When Sheila's niece was 12 she found herself surrounded by adversity, losing three family members to cancer in a very short time. This devoted aunt suggested they sit down together and write a book about it. The result was the creation of a gutsy, huggable, inspiring character named- Trouble. The first book "Here's Trouble" was very successful, it's message is that kids today are pressured at school and deal with other issues such as poverty, homelessness, abuse, divorce, illness, bullying and more. Trouble, the dog, has been made into a plush toy right here in USA and he has been traveling to children & adults around the world. The books message is that trouble is a part of life. This book gives hope and shows that we are not alone. Trouble has a new friend Hope, a rescue dog. The two new friend travel together in the second book "Everyone needs a little Hope" a story for everyone.
