3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? It’s important to me that our youth understand that we all come with some special ability; for some of us it’s harder to find then others. We all have a purpose and when we align ourselves with our natural born talents, we’re in sync with ourselves and the entire world around us.
5. Where do you think the book publishing industry is heading? It’s becoming multimedia. Nowadays an idea isn’t enough. You have to bring an audience. The new media business and publishing industry has to accommodate this multiple platforms system, social, print, video, etc. so all new books will have to play in all those different delivery systems. The industry is breaking up into fragments.
6. What challenges did you have in writing your book? I wrote the boos many, many different ways, I changed POV’s, made it shorter, longer, etc. but making it sound right for children was a struggle. So I got Mary Packard. A true gem, known for so many books, Winnie the Pooh, Little Bear, etc. She managed to take my ideas and story and shape them so that a child would understand everything. I can be a bit deep at times and she helped make it simple. As you know, simplicity is brilliant, but also one of the hardest things to do. Thank you, Mary!
