We're just a group of mammals trying to change the world, one children's book at a time, and keep our heads above water going through a divorce. 

This page was created for the people who love us to have a tangible way to support us in continuing our mission of education and awareness through children's books. 

All illustrations are by the fabulous Nina Enagonio (enorie.art) and are commissioned for our books.

WHO WE ARE

M. J. Davis - Children's book author. Single mama of 2 amazing kids. Obsessed with social justice, gentle parenting, and animal rescue. Disabled, recently separated, and learning to make things work on my own. She/her.

Raven Davis - 11-year-old non-binary kiddo. Budding artist. Biggest heart in the world. In love with cats and senior dogs. They/them.

Brody Davis - 8-year-old boy. Strong-willed in the best way. Compassionate. Fierce sense of justice. Autistic. Constantly creates. He/him.

Magoo - Mystery age Chihuahua mix. Formerly homeless in Texas, now a spoiled ESA in Maryland. No eyeballs, double the normal amount of ear. Afraid of big dogs and the tiniest of humans.

Dalek - 6-year-old French Bulldog. Will literally eat anything. Yes, even that. Farts clear a room. Best snuggler on the planet. 

Stitch - 6-year-old Papillon. AKA Captain Obnoxious. Screams when he doesn't get enough attention. Escape artist. Fastest tongue in Maryland. Also cute.

Odin - 10-year-old domestic shorthair. One eyeball, but it's a pretty eyeball. Talkative. Lover. Was a colony cat and now loving the indoor life.

Fred - 2-year-old domestic shorthair. Friendliest cat ever. Loves EVERYTHING. Wants to be all the places he's not allowed. 

George - 2-year-old domestic shorthair. Fred's identical brother. Hates everyone except Raven. Is judging you. 

Nox - 2-year-old domestic medium hair. Prettiest cat ever. Just wants pets. Will let you boop the snoot.

Luna - 2-year-old domestic medium hair. Nox's sister. Might actually be a dog. Loves fetch and biting ankles. 

WHAT YOU'RE SUPPORTING

Primarily, you'll be supporting the creation of our books!

Our first children's book, Kaylee's Bucket List was published this year. It's based on the true story of Raven and Kaylee. Raven begged to adopt an old dog no one else wanted. After bringing our sweet Kaylee home, we learned she had terminal cancer and spent the next 7 months making the end of her life the best it could be. It took $14,000 to bring the book to life, and seeing Kaylee's story and legacy live on and continue inspiring people to love and adopt senior dogs is worth every penny. 

Our next book, already in the works, is Being Raven. Being Raven is written for children ages 3-10 and helps explain non-binary gender from the perspective of our very own non-binary kiddo. Estimated cost to bring this book to life is $11,000.

Waiting patiently in line behind Being Raven is Meet Magoo! Meet Magoo will tell the story of a certain little blind rescue dog, his love for and adventures with his homeless companion, and his journey into rescue and to his forever family. The manuscript for Meet Magoo is nearly done, and I anticipate costs being similar to Being Raven.

And, once all that is done, I'll be starting on a series of books featuring Magoo geared toward helping children through scary or challenging situations from a gentle parenting perspective.

You'll also be supporting keeping our little family together through this divorce!
