Welcome & Where To Find Me

Welcome to the Writing & Creativity Blog and website of writer and teddy bear artist James (Jim) Milson, author of “The Adventures of Little Red Bear” stories.  To learn more about me, along with my good literary friend Little Red Bear, please visit the About the Blog and Little Red Bear page.

This is a family-friendly site dedicated to Positivity, Kindness, Children, Family, Mother Nature, and Conservation. And keeping up with Little Red Bear and his friends. Red has even been known to share some of his favorite recipe finds with followers from time to time! He is quite the accomplished cook, you know, and his biscuits have won a wall full of blue ribbons at the Tri-County Fair over the years!  (Can’t make a passable pie crust to save his life though so we won’t be mentioning that.)

As in all of “The Adventures of Little Red Bear” stories and other writings, these pages are intended to be Entertaining, Informative, and Educational. Everything is offered Freely because that’s just how we roll here.

In order to keep these pages free of distracting advertisements and quick-loading to enhance our readers’ enjoyment, this site generates no revenue to offset the cost of maintaining and publishing new material. The generous support and help of Patrons help to offset these expenses to allow us to keep the site going and growing to be able to offer more to everyone, including distribution of “The Adventures of Little Red Bear” books at no charge to schools, libraries, hospitals, and senior residence facilities. And to those who cannot afford one for their families.

We invite and encourage you to Join Our New Patreon Community for as little as $1 a month. If you enjoy your visits here, one-time “Tip Jar Thank You’s” are also sincerely appreciated.

I encourage you to kick off your shoes, put your feet up, get comfortable with your favorite beverage, and to browse around to enjoy the ever-growing selections of Free Reads available, including short stories, works of poetry, and feature pieces, including many for the Christmas Holiday season.

Here are just a few of the most-visited pages to help get you started —

Little Red Bear and I sincerely appreciate your visits and time spent with us here, your support, and accompanying us along on the journey. Little Red Bear is all about “Adventures”, you know. Just be sure to bring your “adventure story boots” along because, together with human friends, Little Red Bear has a number of wildlife and animal friends, as well. Careful where you step.
