A: When I was younger, I would write my own music and perform locally. I always had that creative bone in my body. However, somewhere along the way, I stopped writing music, and got into the childcare industry. The children I watched inspired me to start writing children’s books to make learning day to day skills an enjoyable thing. I feel like I was born to create and put things out into the world. My goal for my books is to change peoples lives, and change the way children learn and read.
What books have influenced your writing?
A: I would have to say the Barenstain Bears’ books. I try to incorporate the same meaningful values in my books, while keeping reading fun and entertaining.
What are your latest books, "Teensy the Littlest Fairy" and "Nap Time With Harry", about?
A: "Teensy the Littlest Fairy" is about a very small fairy who uses vegetables to grow. I wrote this book to teach children the importance of eating vegetables in a creative way. "Nap Time With Harry” is the book parents read to their children right before nap time. It’s about two toddlers who don’t like taking a nap every day. Until they begin to have dreams of adventures with a flying car named Harry, and they only get to see Harry during their naps. This book was written to make nap time fun.
What inspired you to write children's books?
I have been in the childcare industry since I was old enough to work. The children I nannied inspired me to start writing children’s books. Just the day to day lessons they had a hard time with; such as eating their veggies, sharing, etc. I decided to write books that make these lessons fun to learn.
I see you run a website called Youngter's Kids. Can you tell us about it?
A: Youngster’s Kids is a brand new children’s educational entertainment company. Currently this is the company I publish and sell my books through, but we also plan to produce a variety of educational toys and activities in the future. Our slogan is Small Minds Think Big, and I couldn’t believe in that more.
What makes these books stand above the rest?
A: My books teach essential life skills in an enjoyable way. I decide on a lesson to be learned in my story and ask myself, what would make learning that, more fun? And I write with that same thought process. I think with a child’s perspective when writing my books.
What is your next project?
A: I am currently working on a new Dino series. This will be my first rhyming series, and, as always, every book will teach an important lesson in a fun way.
What advice could you give fellow/aspiring writers?
A: Innovate. The world of publishing changes every day. The increasing success of indie authors is proof that anything is possible. Don’t be afraid to push the envelope and try strategies that nobody has tried before.
