My Blog- How did I start my journey?

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.
