Plant Seeds of Kindness

Shan Frazier Author Interview

Lucky’s Halloween follows a  black cat who spends Halloween helping lost children, replacing lost candy, and calming an anxious child. What inspired you to write a children’s book about a lucky black cat?  

I’m a humane educator for my local cat shelter. One of the lessons I teach emphasizes dispelling the myth that black cats are bad luck. This is a crucial topic because this myth has perpetuated cruelty. What I love about this lesson is that it can be expanded to include teaching about prejudice against people as well. Humane education aspires to plant seeds of kindness and inclusivity. I hope that this book can act as one of those seeds.

What scene in the book did you have the most fun creating? 

I can’t pick just one. Autumn is my favorite season, and Halloween is such a fun holiday. I thoroughly enjoyed creating every scene. 

What do you hope young readers take away from your story? 

I hope it inspires thoughtful compassion while they come away with the understanding that black cats aren’t bad luck.

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

I’m finishing up my third educational coloring book this month. This one is to aid with emotional regulation. It’s called “Calm Coloring With Animals.”
