Appleton, WI Author Publishes Children's Book

August 05, 2023 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Julie's Seed, a new book by Jerry Hein, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Julie's Seed was inspired by the life and antics of our daughter, Jukie. She was a lover of nature, even as a small child, preferring to play with bugs and creatures. Watching this child grow convinced me to write this story. Julie even contributed much of the original artwork in the book, as did other family members. For 25-30 years, Julie's Seed sat quietly in a file cabinet. Through the encouragement of both my wife, Mary, and daughter, Julie, it has now emerged as a published book!
