What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Amazing YOU! was written to encourage children (and adults) to accept and value their own uniqueness. The acceptance of our own individuality leads to respect for others.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The seeds of "Amazing YOU!" are in a story I wrote as a young mother in the 1990s called "Jenna and the Jungle Animals". Ed the Elephant, as well as the hippo, monkey, and zebra first appeared in that story. I still have the typed copy and treasure it, even with all the White-Out edits.
"I don't like my voice," grumped the hippo named Sue.
"I wish that I spoke with an oink or a moo.
Or a chirp, or a roar, or a squawk, or a squeak.
I really don't care for the way that I speak."
