What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love to write children’s books because it gives me a chance to influence children in a positive way by writing beautiful, colorful and fun stories that always have a good philosophy and prone good values.
I enjoy using animals and talking fruits for the younger ones and her favorite style of writing is science fiction. My subjects are as wide and varied as; bullying, LGBTQ, handicapped people, vegetarianism, being Muslim to driving a spaceship, etc.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Henrik-the animal whisperer, Space pirates with barracuda faces and Dinosaur totem pole have been inspired by 3 boys I individual meet while on vacation. I asked each of them what they liked and dislikes, favorite activities, what were they afraid of, etc. I had a lot of fun writing the stories with the elements each of them provided me.
Out of the blue, the tree shook at the pounding of gigantic footsteps. The Velociraptors all dispersed away with fear! Then a big roar made all the birds fly away as well. Mateo was trembling with terror as he knew that what was close by must be something like a T-Rex or even bigger!
Mateo was holding on to the tree as if he was nailed to it. The deafening roar got closer and closer. With every stomp, the tree shook dreadfully as if it too knew of the proximate danger, and shortly after that everything came to a halt—not a sound.
Mateo’s heart could almost be heard as he was clinging tightly to the tree, his arms around it. Afraid to get the beast’s attention, he did not want to move a muscle. However, a bee just happened to come around and wanted to land on Mateo’s nose. Mateo tried to gently blow away the bee, but the bee was NOT happy and stung Mateo!
“Ahhh!” Mateo shouted out.
Just then the beast stuck its face into the foliage of the tree to see what made that sound. It sniffed and breathed in the odor of Mateo, but Mateo didn’t move so the beast didn’t see him.
