I write children’s books that contain positive messages.
Q: Why do you choose kids as your reader ? is there any specific reason?
When I was a teenager I dreamed of becoming a children’s author, I always had the desire to write for children.
Q: How did these stories and characters come to your mind?
My character Bob Beetle Book Bug ( alliteration) was created after I spent a few days trying to generate ideas with my daughters on how to inspire young children to develop a love for reading. My character Obie The Giant Polka-Dotted Octopus literally just popped into my mind. I was actually trying to write a story about a praying mantis when I got the idea for a storyline about an Octopus.
