Why did you write Reggie & Ryssa and the Summer Camp of Faery?
All of my life, I’ve been an avid reader. As my children grew up, my children were readers – well, at least 2 out of the 3. And yet, everywhere I looked, children were getting less and less into reading and more and more into the realm of video games. It didn’t dawn on me as to why...until Harry Potter hit the market. J.K. Rowling did the one thing for kids that many authors have not been able to do since C.S. Lewis – she produced an incredible piece of fantasy work that made children who had never before shown an interest in picking up a book, actually *want* to read. What she did was amazing.
The thought of taking my fantasy world writing into a realm where children would want to go was exciting to me. As a mother of 3 boys and one step-daughter, it is hard not to make your life and goals not be “all about the kids”. Thus, Reggie & Ryssa was born.
From there, the writing bug took over my life and stories poured out of my pen for any and all who have the interest to find a new story to immerse themselves into. I just hope they enjoy the reading as much as I enjoy the writing!
