Sock Monkey meets the Boogie Woogie Man!

22 Jan

I recently gave a small workshop in Shawsville, VA,  for people interested in writing/illustrating a kids book and getting it published.

Attendees included poetess Mary Hill (one of Tom’s co-collaborators), a kidlit collector (with an incredible collection) and …. Pro Wrestling Superstar Jimmy “The Boogie Woogie” Man Valiant!


“Handsome Jimmy” Valiant is the handsome bearded man with the headband right next to me.

Now, Jimmy has already published his own memoir:

Mercy, indeed!


And his wife, Angel Valiant, has a kid’s picture book out called “Piggy in a Blanket.

But I suppose they thought they’d see what Cece had to say. Hopefully, we’re going to meet up with them again soon and swap a copy of “Sock Monkey Boogie Woogie” for “Piggy in a Blanket.”
