The Latest Book by Brandi L. McMahan:
Sebi the Colt:
After the fourth book in the “I Love You Forever and a Day” series was published, the idea was brought to her for a new children’s book about a young colt named Sebi, living on the shores of the Northern Outer Banks.
While her first book was a dedication to her young son Ethan, and the other three a natural succession of the first, this book was different. It was a tribute to a mother and her son, local friends who perished in May of 2020 in a house fire. The mother of Ravann Horton, and grandmother of Sebastian Lopez, envisioned a book about a young colt named Sebi based on the colt that was named after her grandson in his honor.
The decision was clear and the book quickly took form as Kelley and Brandi worked together to bring it to life. This loving tribute can now be yours too.

I Love You Forever and a Day Book Series
The concept for the “I Love You Forever and a Day” book series began in 2014 when author Brandi McMahan was tucking her three year old son into bed. He said to her, “Mommy I don’t ever want you to be mean.” While pondering which “mean” thing she had done that day to provoke such a comment; was it the “No you can not put that jelly bean up your nose?” thing, or the “No you can’t go pee-pee off the front porch!” thing? Or maybe she raised her voice a tad… come on, we’ve all been there!
Her reply to him was “I’m sorry that I sometimes have to enforce the rules, but I always love you.” She then kissed him on the head and the words came to her as he drifted off to sleep. The seed for a children’s book was planted, and by the time her son turned eight years old, she published her fourth book in the “I Love You Forever and a Day” book series.
Each book in the series includes pages of whimsical and colorful illustrations making a wonderful tool for learning and fun! You will truly enjoy experiencing these books with your little ones as they learn to read along with you and as you discuss the important messages each book introduces as your child grows.
Each page offers a delightful opportunity for children to learn and opens the door for many conversations you can have together. Whether it’s learning colors and shapes, to the days of the week, months of the year and seasons to discussing emotions and what it feels like to miss each other or reminiscing about and planning fun activities together.
Each book begins with a conversation between the child and parent that opens the door for important topics such as discipline, feeling sad, and being apart. Then each book continues to depict how much you love them. No matter what!
