What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Guess what? I’m scared of spiders!
I always have been scared of even the tiniest spider. I don’t know where this fear came from, but it’s there!
When my first child was born, I was so very careful not to show this fear and helped ‘train’ my little girl to love spiders. It worked! My, now not so little girl, takes them out of the house for me.
When my son was born, I tried the same teaching method, but he was not so sure of spiders and so “Hairy, Scary Spider?” was written.
Both my children love wildlife to an extreme and so do I (except maybe for spiders).
Hope you love the little story and maybe it’ll help you too?
