What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Many of my stories began with me writing letters to my young daughter.
See, there was a time in my life that my struggles brought me some trouble which caused my daughter and I to be separated.
I could not stand the fact that I was putting her through this and vowed that I would get her out of this as fast as I could.
Certain officials had told me the rules of letter writing while she was in this situation. But, I thought about it for awhile and began to write them as if I was reading her a bedtime story.
When I got my life back on track? Animal Rain Productions was born and began publishing my stories in Children's books starting in 2007.
"This morning I jumped out of bed, then realized that I'd bumped my head.
Well, a knot went to swelling,' so this story I'm tellin,' of the frog prince and heres what he said.
I was born in a pond with no legs and no arms in the springtime oh I was so glad. With my siblings the tadpoles we frolicked all day what a wonderful time we all had.
As I felt a distraction I jumped into action there were legs sprouting out on display.
Then to my surprise front legs I did spy and my tail well it all went away!
So I hopped on a log to sunning, I was all frog catching flies saying ribbit and such.
Then I tried to move gently but thought evidently oh no I have eaten too much!"

"See, on a fishing trip some years ago; a little boy was running up and down the shore, insisting that I was "Big Red Chicken™"… His Dad said, "Son, you don't know him well enough to call him that." The boy then said, "No, Dad, that's Big Red Chicken, TM!" Since then, it has stuck. So I hired me an attorney and now own the trademark name, 'Big Red Chicken.' "I continue to believe in my dream that one day these stories will be in the hands of many and bring joy and smiles to both young and old!"
