Abbotsford author releases new children’s books

Diane Welch presents new additions to her Mr. Nobody series

Mr. Nobody's Shenanigans is among the books by local author Diane Welch.

Abbotsford author Diane Welch will sign copies of her children’s books at several upcoming appearances.

Welch is the author of three books entitled Introducing Mr. Nobody (2013) and two new books, Mr. Nobody’s Shenanigans and Mr. Nobody’s Christmas Treasury.

Her husband Dave has hand-painted all three books.

The books were inspired by their children Katie, Hope, Page and Austin and their adventures.

“Our purpose in presenting our books is to inspire kids not only to read but, to use their imaginations and learn a few life lessons along the way,” Diane said.

Her book signings take place Nov. 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Surrey Chapters location; Nov. 20 to 22 at the West Coast Christmas Show at Tradex; and on Dec. 11 from 8 to 10 p.m. and Dec. 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. at House of James in Abbotsford.

The books are available at at Chapters, Indigo, Coles, House of James, Papermoon and Amazon online.
