The book my son stressed out about for months, Monster, now has a cover. In keeping with the theme it is colorful and bright. He is hard at work on Wonder, the third in the series.

I’ve always encouraged my kiddos to write. My daughter is a copy writer by day and writes children’s books for fun. I’m so proud of them both.

My son has been writing stories since fifth grade. He constantly has three or four stories he is juggling at one time. I have no clue how he does it. For a long time, he couldn’t seem to finish a story and worried it would always be that way. Last year, we started writing together. Not on the same story, just at the same time. We’d sit in the great room and bounce ideas off each other when one of us would get stuck. The book I was writing at the time, Bondage Anniversary, was shorter than Night and I finished first. On one of our month long trips to NY, my husband went through mine and edited the rough draft. Once we were home, we submitted it. By that time, my son had finished his, but wasn’t sure it was good enough to submit and wasn’t sure where to submit it to. When Totally Bound, responded positively toward my book, it spurred him to send in his. It has been a journey for both of us and to be able to share this with him is something I will be forever thankful for. If
