Age: 73

Question:  How long have you been writing?

I have been writing stories in my mind all my life.  I just never put anything on paper.

Question:  What was the name of the first book you ever published, and when was it published?

"Hello Mommy" is my first humorous book, and it was published in June of 2016.

 Question:  Was this book published by a publisher; or did you self-publish?

It was self-published.

Question:  Tell our readers about this very first book.  (For example:  What was the inspiration for writing it, and what was it about)?

The birth of my two grandchildren inspired me to write these stories.  The title of my book is "Hello Mommy" and the tagline is humorous stories from the womb.  My book consists of thirteen short, cute stories written from the perspective of the child on the day he or she is born.

Question:  Can a person still buy this book?  If so, where?

Yes, a person can still buy this book.  They can buy it at:

Question:  How many total books have you published?

This is my first humorous book.

Question:  Any future writing projects in the works?  If so, tell us about it, and any pertinent dates to go with it.

Yes, I am almost finished with my second children's book.  I don't know when it will be ready as I am still interviewing artists.

Last question, if someone comes across this article and reads it, what would you like to tell them about why you think they should try reading your book or books? (Basically, what can you offer them in the way of information or entertainment)?

In this very trying world we live in, I think everyone can benefit from a little bit of laughter every day and "Hello Mommy" will make you laugh, giggle, or at least smile.  The other thing I'd like to say is that no matter what your age, it is never too late to pursue your passion.

BLOG WRITER'S NOTE TO AUTHOR: Your book sounds like a really cute and humorous read.  I notice that you only have it published on one platform such as Etsy.  You should check around on fiver.com for someone who can transfer it over to Kindle eBook template format.  This way you'd be able to sell it on Amazon. Amazon also owns a print-on-demand company called "Createspace.com" which they can make it into a paperback.  You can learn about Amazon Kindle and Createspace by going out to youtube.com, there are a lot of people talking about how to publish your book in an eBook, or in a paperback out on this site.  Good luck and thanks for the interview.
