Representing Oman for the letter O in The Global Children’s Book Club:
Preethi B Harbuck from #localpassportfamily contacted me about her amazing project The Global Children’s Book Club and asked if I would be interested to represent the letter O, for Oman with my book. My response was, YES!
Her family of 7 feels passionately about learning through exploring, both here at home in the Bay Area, as well as all over the world. To date, they’ve traveled to 62 countries – 43 of those with kids in tow! They’ve lived across the East and West coasts of the United States, across 49 states.

I met some amazing people and travelled to lovely places in Oman. During this time I was inspired to write a story about a place in Oman called Majlis Jinn. This would become my first children’s book as part of the series ‘The Adventures of Chee and Dae.’
Since then the book ‘The Adventures of Chee and Dae in Majlis Jinn” has been translated into Arabic! And I have written 4 more books creating a boxset for the series, ‘The Adventures of Chee and Dae”
Chee is a mischievous cheeky little chimp and loves to play football. Little did he know that some rain and a slippery mud slide would take him to a new friend and exciting adventures. That’s when he meets Dae, the lovely dolphin with whom he travels across the ocean and visits many exotic lands!
