About the Book

It all begins with one question: What is a soul?


This leads Oscar down an unexpected path with wonderful, sometimes bizarre, encounters. What does Oscar discover on his search? More importantly, how will Oscar ever find what he is looking for?


Oscar is a naturally inquisitive boy, just as most children are. However, once Oscar asks a question, his interest never wavers. His need for an answer only intensifies until he finally discovers the truth. Oscar gathers clues from chance meetings and unlikely sources. Seeking help from an unusual friend adds to the excitement and adventure, while Oscar learns that all he needs he already has within.


Oscar is the first book of a series.
