I’ve self-published 29 children’s books and written many more that are yet to be published. Writing for children is a passion for me, but it hasn’t been as easy as it seemed or as easy as people expect it to be. The reason why I love writing for children is because my books may form part of a child’s early development. I adore the thought that one or more of my characters will become a child’s first close friend.

I took a course by Nic Dawes (How to write a book in 30 days or less) and it says that there are no new ideas, but no one can write a book the way you would. There are similar ideas in writing, in advertising, movies and TV, but your uniqueness makes the story unique. Maybe you should try and self-publish the story.
