What inspired you to write your book?
HopALong was a small creature, my children & I saw in Florida on a early morning walk to their school.
True fiction, meaning, the creature was real; it gave birth for the idea to writing the story.
The book is based on nature, the excitement and change HopAlong brought about in the life of a boy, his family and friends.
About your Book:
I like exploring the backyard, the pond and the creatures in and around its habitat; I named the pond, “The Vicks” the family’s last name, which I love to explore early in the mornings and late evenings.
The winding drive way led up to a picturesque five bed room house with double beveled doors front entrance, large wrap around balcony and french doors and windows with shutters on the second floor white columns entwined with ivy, rose bushes and other seasonal flowers flooded throughout the landscape. Pussy willow cascading into the stream of lilies and scilla along the path to the oak trees which seems to have been there for a life time; a swing and a bench here and there for those who seek refuge, the scenic view, and can rest leisurely under the great trees.

How do you see writing a book in the Pet Genre as different from writing other genres of books?
Writing a books about bet in the Pet Genre is really no different. As most book about Pets in the Pet Genre is featured for children.
Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a pet book
There is really, no specific advice, it depends on the troupe of the book, is the book about the pet?, the caring of the pet, the views and works all the depend on the writer thoughts and what he or she is bring into perspectives for their readers.
How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
As HopAlong is my first book for children, I decided to publish Createspace which is a learning process, convenient and free and this is where all my books will be publish unless I am found by a children’s publisher who like my works and want to publish my books.
I would advise new authors to explore a publisher, if they have the money to hire a publisher. Otherwise self publishing is I am hoping will be profitable and satisfactory.
