More About the Author

Observation and mimicry have been my tools of learning. I have become a thief of character. I find things about people that I admire and steal those positive attributes, quickly disguising them as my own.

Quick story: In speaking with an old family friend one day I realized that he was leaning forward so he could hear me. His eyes were focused on mine when an awareness emerged. By nothing more than listening intently to what I was saying - he gave me a sense of importance, of consideration. Noticing this affect was important. Making others feel this way became my personal goal. Listening to others in the same manner, simply put, is considerate. So I stole that from him and have made it mine.

Being preached to has a negative affect on me. I figure others are the same. So, I don't preach. Besides, I don't really have anything to say. But I can be myself and hope that it has a positive impact on those that observe. Just like my mom and dad did with me. Their actions were louder than their words.

My new book is really about actions over words. The Secret Teddy Society is about teddy bears that come to life. But it's more about who they are and how they got that way. They watch and learn everything from us. While we think we're alone, they're watching. They copy and emulate the person they love the most much like our children. Sprinkled with wonderful situations of life, this book is aimed at anyone who believes in life that lives outside our peripheral vision. It may be about teddy bears but when they meet up with an alley bum in the city they learn about personal choices and responsiblities of your actions. I had so much fun writing this book that I think I'll write another.

I hope to make an impact on you. Hopefully, a good one.

This book was not what I expectedd! In fact, it was so much better than what I expected! It was at times funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes scarry. But it all added up to be a great story for adults and kids of all ages. I mean who doesn't love a Teddy Bear? I loved that it even included a brief history of how the first Teddy came into being. You could not help but get caught up in the secret lives of the Teddies, Waldo and Bobby Bear and their owners Bobbie, and James. At times during this story, I found that I was holding my breath to find out what came next. I encourage everyone to cuddle up with their favorite Teddy and enjoy this wonderful story! Oh, and I bet after you finish it, you will never see your favorite Teddy in the same way again!

This book was wonderfully written and I hope to read more of J.S. Gilmore's work! I could not help but feel like he poured his heart and soul into this book and it truly came through in his writing!

I wanted to love this book! It is a cute idea and has a lot of potential. The characters are developed well and come to life on the page. I especially liked James, Bobbie, Bobby Bear, and Waldo. James is a fun character and seems like a great dad. Bobbie is so sweet and is a good bear-owner. Bobby Bear and Waldo are hilarious. I love their sibling-like-bickering and the names they come up with for ice cream and marshmallows. The descriptions are very well done and I felt like I was right there in the story. The part of the story that deals with the cute bears and their sweet human Bobbie, and her dad who writes these amazing stories about the bears, that is all great! Girls K-3 would love it! But then the other half doesn't fit at all. There are scary were-bears, zombie bears, a scary, drunk homeless man who lives in a cardboard box in an alley, and two teenage boys who try to steal a car. There are also a couple of swear words. This part of the story would not be good for those K-3 girls, yet, 4th-5th boys wouldn't really like the sweet part of the story. I'm just not sure who the target audience is.
