How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I love writing for children and writing poetry. I am a mother, and a grandmother and I’ve worked with Pre-K children for many years. The children in my life inspire all of my children’s books. I also write in other genres for adults, such as; paranormal, romance and scifi. Each genre that I write in, has it’s own rewards and frustrations. I tend to have at least two books in progress at the same time in different genres. It helps to keep the flow going to ease writers block. I’ve been writing for most of my life on many different subjects, it feels much freer, not limiting myself to only one genre.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Never give up and it’s never too late to start. If you enjoy what you do, others will too. Visibility is one of the hardest hurdles I’ve encountered. But I believe if I continue to educate myself on new ways to promote and market my books, eventually they will be found. So after you’ve crafted a wonderful book, learn all you can about marketing and sales, if you want to self-publish.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book was inspired by my own mother, and all the wonderful mothers I’ve been privileged to meet while working in an elementary school through the years. I wanted to write something that could help children understand the strength and depth of the love, that their mothers have for them. I’ve also written a companion book, Your Father’s Love, for the same reasons. Each book has their own unique illustrations and words, even though they are related.
