OUR PHILOSOPHY
At Little Treasure Books, we strongly believe in the creativity and genuine talent of many writers whose voices would go unheard if it were not for the independent publisher.  Twelve years ago, the company’s owner took a leap of faith, along with the economic risks necessary, to introduce new authors to those readers looking for books that offer hope, encouragement, and inspiration.  We sincerely accept this responsibility, and remain dedicated and determined to give these gifted writers the opportunity to have their stories told.

OUR MISSION
Our mission is to publish books of integrity that speak to the hearts, minds, and souls of our readers . . . gently putting them in touch with their inner core, ultimately offering them a place of solace. . . a place where they can be who they are and at peace wherever they are along life’s journey.

OUR GOAL
It is our objective to remain selective in choosing the books we publish.  In doing so, Little Treasure vows to uphold the highest of standards and produce only those books that will inspire, enrich, and leave readers  with a positive message.

IN MEMORY OF MONICA ANNE AVERHOFF

AUTHOR OF “TOMORROW: RAISING AN ANGEL”

 There was once a young girl who saw the world as One
She thought about the pain of others while she had fun
It’s not fair she would tell friends, her sister, dad and mom
We are all God’s children and should laugh and sing as One
 
She saw through the inequity of the place we call home
Understood that some live life together, others alone
It’s a big world this place in which we live, her poetry told
We must give of ourselves to the less fortunate, both young and old
 
Times are few when a prophetic child, like Monica Anne
Comes to earth for such a short time offering us a hand
Sharing her wisdom, leading the way, teaching us to stand
Not just as a nation but in unity throughout this great land

 
Today I thank you Monica for having had the courage of so few
To take this journey, living the words you knew to be true
Enlightening, encouraging, inspiring all those you knew
To spread your message of love, as did the ‘Lady in Blue’

                                                                                                Bernadette Garzarelli

 

Dedicated to those who lost their life to
Hurricane Katrina along
America's Gulf Coast


"Death ends a life but it does not end a relationship which struggles on in the survivor's mind toward some resolution which it may never find.  Alice said I would not accept the sadness of this world.  Did it matter if I never loved him or if he never loved me?  Perhaps she was right, but still when I hear the word 'father' it matters."
                Quotation from movie titled, "I Never Sang for my Father"

The sadness of this world, whether familial or worldly, is felt by each of us at some time whether we are cognizant of it or not.  The power of this sadness impacts our moods and our relationships. 

As everything is converse, should there be no sadness in life we would be
blinded from the joy of life. It is our choice to allow sadness to overwhelm
joy, just as it is our choice to live life in light rather in the dark.  And so
it is that if the survivor of a loved one is able to accept the fact that the
resolution they struggle for may never be found, this survivor shall live in the light.
   
Bernadette Garzarelli, Publisher
