What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My (then) 2 year old grandson and his family took a vacation to FL and they all visited the beach one day. Afterward, they entered the hotel elevator to go back to their room, and he looked at one of the elevator passengers (who was dark skinned) and said, "Daddy, her face is dirty!"
I knew that he really hadn't been exposed to many different cultured folks, and I thought that one way to express to other children in the same situation as my grandson was to have a fun book written about what they will be seeing in their lives.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I needed a medium for seeing a complete neighborhood in one days time, and I thought that a butterfly could make that trip slow enough, yet thoroughly to gather differences within the neighborhood that the reader lives.
This is Alex. He is a brightly colored butterfly—and he is DIFFERENT!
He comes from a world full of different kinds of butterflies! His friends are all very unique; they come in different colors, shapes, and sizes!
Alex has two friends named Tyler and Shawn. Both are very different.
Alex looks at Misaki’s clothes next. ‘Wow,’ Alex thinks, ‘her clothes are very different too! Those flowers on her dress are so bright and pretty!’ He thinks. He takes a closer look at Misaki’s dress. Something about it seems familiar to him.
“Wait! I know what this is!” Alex says, “This dress is called a kimono!” Alex flaps his wings in pride for knowing the name of Misaki’s dress.
