Etcetera - 04/29/11


Burbank author Ann Correll celebrated the nationwide release of her juvenile fiction story "Ears to Hear," and her novel "The Battle for Andy."

"Ears to Hear" tells the story of Tommy and Timmy, brothers who find themselves alone in a strange forest. While Tommy continues to call for help just as his dad has always told him to, and hears nothing, Timmy hears a voice that assures him everything will be OK.

Tommy initially doesn't believe Timmy can hear anything, but with the help of some new friends, Tommy discovers the amazing things a person can hear when he learns to listen.

In the second story, Andy's beloved parents die a car accident, which tips off an intense battle for control over him, and the potential catalyst that could destroy his relationship with God.

Andy must choose whether he'll continue to follow God, or if Satan will win control of his life.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the books are available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or online at,, or
