Congratulations on the release of Seymour the Semi - Space Truckin’. Please tell us more about it.
About the book:
After a storm damages their supply shuttle, the National Outer Space Explorers, (NOSE), calls on Seymour the Semi for help in getting supplies to the space station. Seymour agrees to help and goes on his greatest adventure yet.
What was the inspiration for this book?
Scott: I’ve always been intrigued by space travel and I’ve always loved trucks. Connecting the two was an easy choice.
What is your favorite moment from the book?
Scott: When Seymour is reentering the Earth’s atmosphere.
Is this your first published book?
Scott: I self published my first book, Seymour the Semi - Snow Days, but this is my first book published with GAP.
We’d love to hear more about you.
I am a former truck driver and I’ve worked in the trucking industry for over 30 years.
I’ve loved trucks since I was a little kid. I was always playing with them when I was little and when I saw them on the road I would wonder where they were going and where they had been.
My wife, Joanne, and I have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Being a grandfather helped inspire me to write children’s stories, so Seymour the Semi was born.
I look forward to sharing more Seymour the Semi adventures in the near future.
How can our readers learn more about you and any upcoming Seymour the Semi - Space Truckin’ events?
Scott: They can visit Seymour’s Facebook page and look for a website coming soon.
