Congratulations on the release of CHIP’S SHARING DAY. Please tell us more about it. What was the inspiration for this book?
Cousin Dorcas is visiting today and Chip's mother tells him he must share his toys because it's kind and nice and fair to share. Shy Dorcas picks up one toy after the other, only to have that rascal Chip remind her that they have to share and take turns playing with his toys. Finally, Dorcas decides to be kind and nice and fair by sharing something with Chip that he might not actually want! Chip finds himself reluctantly admiring his cousin for beating him at his own game.
Linda: The inspiration for this book were real teddy bears that I gave voices and personalities to. Chip was a cute stuffed bear, but I could tell he was quite naughty. J
What is your favorite moment from the book?
Linda: When shy Cousin Dorcas earns Chip's respect with her trick.
Is this your first published book?
Linda: My first book was another for children. The Missing Stories: Caleb’s Missing Whisper & Other Stories was published by Hard Shell Word Factory, but it’s no longer available.
We’d love to hear more about you.
Linda: I get inspired by many things: The things my children do and shouldn't, and don't do and should! Animals, stuffed animals and dolls inspire me. They have so much personality sometimes, they write their own stories.
How can our readers learn more about you and any upcoming events?
