More About the Author

True love exists and if I can inspire people to know that, then I've done my job.

My stories take place in the towns I lived in while searching for my purpose: Oregon, Nevada, New England, the South and the heartland of America. They are dedicated to the angels I met along the way who showed me true love comes in all forms, unconditionally.

It wasn't that long ago that I was living in my car with my mother and pets. But whether it was being abused as a child, bullied at school or taking care of my family's illnesses, one thing kept me going: my writing.

I knew if I kept writing from the heart, people would connect and one day my dream of being an author would come true.

He is known to have broken the news that Seth Godin was ditching traditional publishing which lead to mentions on hundreds of blogs and media outlets including The LA Times, Fast Company, and New York Observer. His news break that Jackie Collins would be self-publishing the US-version of her eBook lead to mentions in The Bookseller, The Guardian, USA Today and hundreds of other outlets.

His humble beginnings of living in American poverty on welfare and food stamps as the child of a single mother, to his days living in his car and final rise to becoming a published author, journalist and media personality have inspired many.

Rivera created a massive online following before the eBook revolution even existed.

One day last week Jeff Rivera, an award-winning author of Young Adult fiction, wrote to ask if I would take a look at Um ... Mommy, I Think I Flushed My Brother Down The Toilet, his first foray into the world of books for a younger audience. Though I don't often review children's books these days, the "child" in my life now being old enough to acquire a Provisional Scooter License in the UK, I do have a love of children's literature so I was happy to have a look. I have mixed impressions.

Unlike books for the Young Adult market, where one's audience can read, there really are two kinds of children's books, books to be read together and books to read "all by yourself." As a Read Together, Um ... Mommy, I Think I Flushed My Brother Down The Toilet is engaging and funny in a way that boys both small and tall adore, a great book for Dads or Uncles to read with the young people in their lives. As a bonus, the book displays nicely on Grandma's beloved iPad - something that not all children's Kindle books do by a very long shot. As a Read Together, this is a solid 4-star read.

Sadly, Um ... Mommy, I Think I Flushed My Brother Down The Toiletis not as successful as an "All By Myself." Children in general do not care to read about children younger than they are themselves as they consider it "babyish." By giving his main character, big sister Faleesha, an age - 7 - Jeff pegged his book for Ages 6-7.

I have a ten-year old grandson and he loves anything that may be gross or disgusting. He would love this book that spins a tale of a young girl who flushes her little brother down the accident? And then must venture after him in a rescue effort before their father finds out. The illustrations are awesome and the book will be a hit for anyone with young children OR grandchildren who may find foul and repulsive things really cool!!!

Let me start this review off by saying, as a reviewer I have reviewed countless children's books over the years, but....I have never reviewed a book such as this and I say that with a smile. First of all the title is going to grab the attention of any little one, because it is definitely not the norm for a story tale, but it's a winner just the same. The author uses something that a child has contact with everyday and probably at one time in their young life has thrown a few choice articles down its inviting mouth, but their little brother? Hummm!!!! The adventure begins as Mom definitely is not a happy camper when she finds out her son, Jesse, has been flushed down the toilet by his sister, Falisha Whiskers. Mom demands that Falisha finds her brother and brings him home.

Falisha is not happy about this, but knows better than to tell her Mom no, so off she goes down to a land few have traveled before, one that is called the Kingdom of Yuck! Our author does an excellent job in describing how this 'Kingdom' looks, hills made of slushy gushy mush, streets made of smelly jelly fellies...and illustrator, Danko Herrera. brings the story alive with his excellent colorful illustrations. Now, the question is, does she find her brother and bring him home, or does Falisha wonder in this Kingdom of Yuck forever? Ah.....I leave that for you to find out.

Final words, I highly recommend this book for several reasons. First, it is different than any other I have seen. It's a fun read with wonderful illustrations, yet doesn't stop there. The story also shows a child if they are going to do something they know they should not, there will be consequences and if possible they will have to make it right. Responsibility for their actions, a good lesson to learn.

I don't usually review childrens books, but this AM the covers were sticking straight into my face from Kindle recommendations area on my reader. I finally remembered that I just ordered a set of childrens books for my little niece, so, it was Amazon tracking. LOL... I am a very open minded person so if it's interesting, I will read anything. So, the title of the book is what grabbed me. So, I purchased it to my e-ink reader to prescreen it, and see if it was appropriate for my niece.

Well, I am glad I did! This was a delightful tale that actually had me laughing this morning. The author starts the book of with a very appropriate, warning to children to not try this at home. We all know how curious children can be at this age, that was very responsible. It's a very short story that follows 7 yr old Falisha Whiskers, trying to get her 5 yr old annoying brother Jesse out of her, because he never gets her name right. Purposely, calling her Faseesha all the time. So once he can't be found by their Mom, and she questions her daughter for his whereabouts. This stumbles out of sister's mouth, " I flushed Jesse down the toilet" with the matching detailed illustration to it on the next page, as an adult I was hooked and hysterical.

This author a wrote an excellent, funny, very imaginative adventure into the yucky toilet world now having to get her little brother back, under house orders. This book teaches children to love each other no matter what, and we need a little more of this in our world now. I would definitely recommend this book for children, but I am going to order the paperbacks, because in school storytelling time, the teachers are still using book.
I was amazed though, how clear and detailed the illustrations stood out on my e-ink reader.
