Most frequent questions and answers
My dream is to help children all over the world. I wanted to make a difference and spread awareness about bullying. Both of my books are about bullying, and both of the books’ proceeds help children in need.
I hope readers learn that it’s ok to always chase your dreams no matter what. I hope it helps them learn to cope with bullying and gain self-confidence. I also hope to help spread awareness of helping others cope with bullying.
Unfortunately, I have been bullied myself. This is a big reason why I wanted to spread awareness about bullying; I know what it feels like to be bullied, and so I wanted to help other children cope with it and overcome it.
Aria and Autumn (characters from my books) are somewhat based on myself. Nibbles, a character in my second book “The Flip Side”, is based on my late pet hamster. Along with that, Autumn who is also from “The Flip Side” enjoys making animations, like myself. Aria from “Flamingo Feet” does jazz dancing, and I also have done jazz dancing in the past. From dancing to animations, both of these books teach a valuable lesson to children to stand up for themselves.
