I Wanted Him to be Honored

Shauntae Spaulding Author Interview

My Time With Papa helps readers deal with the loss of a loved one by reminding them of all the wonderful memories they have. Why was this an important book for you to write?

It was important for me to keep the book lighthearted but also provide a discussion for parents to have with children. I also wanted to make sure my stepfather came to life in the book by capturing things he loved and the bond he had with his granddaughter.

The art in this book was vivid and bright. What was the art collaboration like on this project?

My illustrator was fantastic in capturing my stepfather’s likeness. It was uncanny. I was very specific in what I wanted in the book because it was a reflection of him and I wanted him to be honored. My illustrator took the details and embodied the emotions I wanted to capture by keeping the illustrations lively and colorful.

Do you have plans to write other children’s book?

Yes, I do! After writing this book, I fell in love with process and wrote three more. I look forward to sharing those with the world as well!
