Remember Why I Started



Rawry's Missing Tooth is finally out and available for purchase! I'm so excited about this book and all the hard work that went into it. It was a long time in the making, and now it’s finally out! I cannot describe how fulfilling it is to see it in the hands of little children everywhere, sharing this story with grandparents and parents, and giggling at how this cheeky character tries to get his superpower back.



With Rawry out there, and a next book in the making, I have so many thoughts racing through my mind though - from plot ideas to marketing strategies and creative direction for future illustrations, that I find myself in a constant state of planning, researching, reading, thinking and strategising, and sometimes forget this is my playground!


In between my day job (yes, I have another career too!), my family and my books, it can be easy to forget why I started all of this. The days are long, I am oftentimes found doing something outside of my comfort zone while trying hard to balance writing something new, working on existing stories and ... life.


So, I feel I need this cathartic blog post to remind myself why I do this.


I started because I had too many stories running through my mind, and when it gets too busy in there I fear I might explode. (This would make a good story plot - the girl whose head exploded!)


I started because I want to help equip children with a positive outlook on life and provide them with valuable lessons that they can carry with them as they grow. Because life is hard and has loads of ups and downs, and it’s not always fairytales and rainbows, but if they approach it with kindness, passion and humour, it can be.


I started writing for children because I don’t think there is anything more beautiful that a human being can experience than a child’s laughter, little smiles and giggles of happiness, and I will be forever grateful if can give them that.
