Found Within Ourselves

Wendy Monica Winter Author Interview

Where’s My Joey? is a heartwarming story following a mother Kangaroo searching for her lost joey. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

My inspiration to write this book came while teaching in Perth, Australia in 2007. Photos with the first draft of this story were sent to my young nieces in America a furry kangaroo photo album and they loved it.

The art in this book is beautiful and detailed. What was the art collaboration process like with illustrator Roxana Antochi?

It is wonderful to work with Roxana. She far exceeded my expectations with the detailed research she put into every aspect of her gorgeous illustrations.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

The main theme (spoiler alert) is for me the profound wisdom that what we are truly looking for can only be found within ourselves.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I have written the first draft of my second book. It will be a picture book about the nature of light and dark. Roxana and I are not pursuing it yet because we still have many plans for Where’s My Joey?. The coloring book was recently released. We are currently working on a hardcover version as well publishing the book in other languages.

Mother Kangaroo cannot find her Joey! Will she find the baby kangaroo before his dinner gets cold?  Who will help her in Australia? Does Koala, Emu or Kookaburra know where Joey is?

Who will help Mother Kangaroo in Canada?  Do Moose or Bear or Beaver have any clues?  Where’s Joey? Read and find out!

Written by a teacher who lived in Australia, this book is entertaining, engaging, and educational on many levels. (It has a secret spiritual message for those who want to discover it.) Filled with beautiful illustrations and a beautiful story, this is a book all ages will enjoy.

This is a book you will treasure for years and enjoy with your children (or grandchildren) again and again.
