How long have you been writing?
I have been writing since I was 16. I started out one summer writing a screenplay and then I knew I had keep trying. I loved the creative aspect of it.
What was the most challenging part about writing Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures for Wildlife Alliance?
Making sure the facts are straight. I think writing for a children’s audience in a fictional modality but still trying to teach something really stretched me in so many ways. I had to constantly think what I wanted to get across, was it interesting, was the dialogue true to a character at that age. And then where do you pull back. I had to learn when is enough, enough for a children’s audience.
What do you enjoy the most about being an author?
The connection to the audience.
Is this book part of a series?
How many books do you have planned in this series? Yes, this book is part of a series. There are 3 books in the series: Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures for Wildlife Alliance, Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures: Go Go Green, and Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures: Plants Parts 1 & 2. The plants book also has a Spanish version Plantas Partes 1 y 2
Do you have any works in progress?
Yes I just finished a special ebook which takes the characters into a new adventures with domestic pets. And I am currently working on a book that has a special place in my heart where Jordan & Justine explore one particular endangered species. That one I will keep a surprise. Both are expected to release next year.
