Childrens Books by Tricia Gates Brown

I published the following kids books, Frederick and the Flute Maker and Twila and the Treasure, in 2005 and 2009, with the help of gifted illustrator Sally Lackaff. Both books can be purchased in shops around the Oregon north coast or online through the Cannon Beach History Center
Keep an eye out for a future book about Astoria!

Frederick and the Flute Maker is the story of the "little people" who live on Haystack Rock, of the rock eldress Royle, of the summer Royle encounters a boy named Frederick, and of how that encounter changes both of their lives.


One of my favorite illustrations from the book...


Twila and the Treasure tells of an adventurous girl in pursuit of riches. The story takes place on Neahkahnie Mountain and in Manzanita, Oregon, when the village was barely a stop on the trail. The tale follows Twila, a fearless discoverer who manages to find treasure, but only after stumbling into trouble.

Hi Tricia! I really enjoyed your children's book "Frederick and the Flute Maker!" The concept is amazing and the illustrations are beautiful too! It has an important message that more need to read. I am an author about to self-publish a children's book about bullying. I thought I would also ask you how it has been going for you with the book? What kind of promotion have you been doing and have you seen satisfactory results? Have you thought to approach a publisher?
Thanks and good day!
