Where is My Voice? The Inspiration for My Second Children’s Book

Updated: Sep 3, 2021

Hey readers! I know it’s been a while, but I have another post for you today!

My second book will be here before you know it! I am so excited to launch it. Before I launch it, let’s chat a bit about the inspiration surrounding my last book and then my new book.

how to teach children about death children's book

Sooo my first book, Poppy's Garden, happened after the death of my father junior year of college. I was extremely devastated. I wanted to create a book that would help children through the traumatic death of a loved one whether that be a friend, a parent, a pet, and etc.

This book did fairly well, so I decided that I wanted to write more.


Sooo BOOM, last year I got sick. I thought to myself, why are you not doing what you love? Why are you so miserable where you are?

I then started strategizing more books and what I wanted to do in life.

Here comes the development of book number 2. HIP HIP HOORAY!

I decided to write off of the inspiration of having a lost voice. Some of us lose our voices through employment, social media, to fit in, and etc. Some of us also use our voice to create hate and I wanted to acknowledge this as well through my writing teaching children to use their voices especially for good.
