How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I find that writing children’s books is easier than writing in other genres because there are no limits when it comes to creating characters and stories. Children love all types of adventures and it’s easy to create stories that take them to magical places in their imagination.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I loved making up stories for my son as he was growing up and he always loved the stories about Gemma and her adventures at Rainbow Farm. When I began telling the stories to my grandchildren, they fell in love with Gemma too. I finally became convinced that I should bring Gemma to life in her own books so other children could enjoy the stories as much as my own family does.
