What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
What's life really like on a farm?
It occurred to us that kids would like to hear about life on a farm, so we wrote some of our experiences as stories under the pen name "Francie Farmer". Fun and educational, these books are accurate and tell what really happens with animals and farm life.
From showing chickens and horses in competition at the fair to surprising a wild mink in the henhouse, "Francie" tells her experiences in a fun and educational way.
Our family kept honeybees, cared for cows and horses, kept our own egg-laying hens and cut wood in the forest to heat the family home. One time we even came home to find muddy bear prints on our screen door!
What happens when the cows get out? Do all cows give milk? What does a farm dog do? Do bees always sting? What are barn cats and where do they live? What kind of food do different animals eat? How do animals stay warm in the winter?
Kids will enjoy learning about the joys and challenges of life on a farm.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
We tried to have our characters as children who reflect our daughter's personality as much as possible, especially since she is the real child who experienced this farm life.
As they walked, a honeybee appeared. It buzzed around them.
"Oh no!" Kathy cried. "A bee! Get away! Get away!"
She swatted at the bee as it flew near her.
"Oh no, don't do that!" cried David. "She won't hurt you! She's just looking for flowers!"
