My publisher Marti Gorman at City of Light Publishing was recently interviewed for the Children's Book Council's blog. I had the wonderful surprise of being mentioned in her interview when asked this question:
"What is a title you’re proud to have published and why?"
"The most important children’s book that I have ever published is surely Clover and the Shooting Star. Since its release in 2016, this charming board book has helped thousands of toddlers cope with loss. Clover is a bunny, and the shooting star is a sparkling metaphor for those we lose too soon. They can light our hearts just like the shooting star lights the hearts of the fireflies, so we remember them forever. Award-winning artist Heather Lynn Harris created this gem of a book now used by Hospice organizations across the country, in response to a family tragedy. She has also breathed new life into Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Swing, and retold Five Hungry Mice, another long lost 19th century tale. The Monster in My Basement is her next book, with a timely October 2020 release date."
Wow, Marti! Thank you for those wonderful words about my book. I could never have done it without you:) If you want to check out the full story you can click on the link here.
