East Cobbers Nancy Eramian and Amy Bichsel have published their first children’s eBook, Hermit Crab Hijinks & Other Sea Adventures with illustrations by Kirsen St. Peter. Geared toward children ages 6 and up, the book is currently available for download on Amazon, Apple iBooks, and Barnes & Noble.
Nancy Eramian and Amy Gose Bichsel met in 1998 when both of them were hired to be guidance counselors at a large public high school in a suburb of Atlanta, GA. Their professional relationship and friendship continued as they later worked together at a private high school in the area. They wroteHermit Crab Hijinks and Other Sea Adventures on paper napkins in Nancy’s car on the way home from a colleague’s wedding on Hilton Head Island, SC. When they arrived back in Atlanta, the friends decided to keep writing adventures for the hermit crab buddies, and they have produced several more books with these characters, plus a few others. Nancy and Amy are both former French teachers and have more than 45 years combined teaching and counseling experience, so they wanted to create characters that possess qualities they enjoy seeing in their students: friendship, teamwork, diversity, honesty, humor, and creativity.
