What inspired me to write a children’s book?
Where to begin? Right now, it is the
middle of the summer and it is super
hot. I just launched my first ever
published children’s book called
Milly’s Adventures. It has been a
dream of mine to write one.
I will never forget my birthday this
year because it was the day the
governor of my state declared a state
of emergency and it was the last day I
was in the classroom. I never thought
my world would turn upside down. It
was very scary when I was worried
that I would get sick and my family
would too. In order to get my mind
from going crazy I decided to write.
What made my heart sing? Cute
adorable penguins and then I found
Milly. I fell in love with her image. All I
could think of was having her travel
around the world. What could be
better than having young children be
on quest to help her find her way home
to her family. Better yet, they can
learn how to complete challenging
tasks in a fun way.
After I wrote Milly’s Adventures, I
went into phase two, how do I get it
printed? How do I publish it? I knew
self-publishing was the way to go
because my job was in limbo due to the
uncertainty in the world around me. I
spent hours upon hours researching
and discovered the on-line publishing
company called The Book Patch. I was
so relieved that there was a place I
could go to make my book become a
reality, not just a dream.
