Daisha Gets the “I” in KIND follows a young school girl that wins an award for all the kind things she has done at her school. What was the inspiration for your story?
I was inspired by a girl named Daisha and other students that I work with. Their positive actions are noticeable and sparked an idea in my head.
The art in this book is fantastic. What was the art collaboration process like with illustrator Marcos Rodrigues?
I am so glad that you loved the artwork. I imagined each illustration and he brought it to life. I provided samples of the style that I envisioned, then wrote detailed notes about each scene of the story. He created sketches for my approval or for adjustments.
In the end I love the results.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
The main theme was kindness. I wanted readers to understand that kindness can be shown in many different ways. Also the main character Daisha, made the connection that she learned to be kind from observing in and participating with her own family.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
My next book just came out. It is about self love, ” I Love Myself, Willliam’s Whys”. It explores the love that Willliam has for himself even when he makes mistakes or isn’t perfect. It is now available on amazon: https://amzn.to/34CO96t
