Shoot me a question and I’ll answer and post it on here.
Q:What made you decide to write children’s books?
A: Easy. My children. I read to them a lot, and because they know I write, they always asked me to write something specifically for them. I figured there was no harm in it, and so I began working on The Imaginaut. During the process, my hopes for that book grew and grew, but my base desire was always to please my children. It was a great opportunity to not only bond, but to encourage them to read. I also answer this question more in two different places. Feel free to check them out as well.
A: Write what brings you pleasure. When I finished writing my book Death Bound, I was proud of it, but I wasn’t necessarily proud of myself. It was a dark, dreary book, and though many (3 or 4 lol) people liked it, it didn’t really bring happiness to the world. For me, I want to bring something positive to the table. This is why I write for children now. It brings me pleasure to entertain and educate children. So, yeah, that’s my advice. Write what brings you pleasure.
