Laurel author teaches values of friendship, trust in new children’s book

This is a news release from Key Marketing Group   

Author Patricia Crocker Moss announces the nationwide release of her new children's book, “Dillie and the Dragonfly.”

In “Dillie and the Dragonfly,” Dillie the armadillo meets a dragonfly named Victor for the first time. She is impressed with his iridescent wings and long legs. Dillie and Victor's visit is seemingly ruined by a dilemma that will require the help of three unlikely new friends to solve. In the process, all involved learn valuable lessons of trust, courage and friendship, and Victor realizes his handsome features aren't important at all. 

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Moss grew up in rural South Central Mississippi, where her life was pretty much the norm for a child of a country preacher. She graduated from Sand Hill High School, Richton, Mississippi, and studied business at a local community college. She then began a 32-year career in the business world, culminating in a stint as the chairman and CEO of a nationally recognized manufacturing company. As an author, Moss has published other books in her “Dillie” children's book series, including “Dillie's Ride to the Sea,” “Dillie's Summer with Aunt Juliette” and “Dillie's Encounter with the Bucket Man.” Moss has two sons and daughters-in-law, Chris and Christie and Zachary and Ashley Moss, and two grandchildren, Patrick Brodie and Emalee Grace Moss. She currently resides in Laurel, Mississippi.
