Invitation to Check Out Karate Dottie for Free at our new site

Hi everyone!

It has been a while since I posted on this site. 

I had some news I want to share with you. First of all, I am posting Karate Dottie chapters every Tuesday at the new  Initially, I will be serializing her first book, Karate Dottie and the Treacherous Treehouse in it's entirety with additional artwork and then  I will roll right into the unpublished sequel Karate Dottie and the Alien Menace.  The sequel will not be available for purchase in book form until it is serialized in it's entirety online.  To start at the beginning of the adventure, just click here.  

Why? Because this year is the 5th anniversary of the publication of Karate Dottie and the Treacherous Treehouse (2009) which also launched Metal Lunchbox Publishing which now has 7 titles by authors Ellen Parry Lewis, Charles Matthews and Janine Carbone.

Karate Dottie is a determined and fierce little girl who dreams of growing up to be a samurai warrior much to the dismay of her parents and the amusement of her classmates. She is fierce and scrappy and will not let anything stand in her way, even her asthma. Her best friend is the portly big hearted Gordo who always gets in trouble because of Dottie’s wild and outlandish schemes. In her first adventure, one of Dottie’s classmates suffers the loss of a beloved pet in a tragic accident. While attending the funeral, Dottie comes up with a misguided plan for her and Gordo to reunite Fluffy with her owner. Things do not go exactly as planned and the unintended consequences are chilling.

Please check it out and leave a comment. I love getting your feedback. Feel free to contact me directly at If you know someone you feel would enjoy the stories, please let them know as well.  

All the best!
