What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I was a kid, I attempted to dig a hole to China. Since I lived in Florida, all I got was a hole full of water. I wondered what might've happened had I actually been able to accomplish the task. Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China is an imaginative look at one possibility.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Bubba and Squirt were the nicknames for my two kids when they were little. I thought it would be fun to have protagonists with those names.
It's me–Bubba. My turn! I was glad to get out of the hole, but what I saw did not look one bit like home. What I saw was an army of men. Thousands of them! They were all standing there, lined up, ready for battle. Armor covered they shoulders and chests. Their faces looked fierce and determined. And do you know what else? They were made of stone.
Squirt came out behind me. "Whoa!"
"What is this place?" I asked.
Squirt stared. 'I have no idea. But what I do know is that you got us into a big mess!"
