What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
There is the time of before writing Tony the Pickle stories and after. More than fifteen years ago I used to babysit a group of five siblings. They loved storytime before bedtime and were always eager to hear the stories I made up, but one stuck. Tony and his wacky adventures were the highlight of the night.
So over the years I managed to develop the characters and scenarios without even realizing. They were the trial kids you might say, but many other kids I babysat had the chance to hear about Tony. I never wrote the stories in paper.
Many years later I started reading stories to my daughter and saw how much she loved them. She got me thinking about Tony and his world and inspired me to get the stories written down once and for all and the rest is history.
They both stand there staring at each other, thinking they might have found a hidden treasure.
When they read the belly of the cave, they see golden nuggets, crowns, and all types of jewelry.
"We are rich!" shouts Froggy.
"Froggy are you sure this doesn't belong to someone else?" says Tony.
"It's all ours, Tony, don't worry about it," answers Froggy.
As Froggy starts grabbing handfuls of gold, they head a yawn. "Ahhhwaaaah."
