My first book, Monster Needs a Costume, is going to be released September 3rd 2013!
I am really excited as I guess most people would be, with their first book. This will be the first book in the Monster&Me series. The second book will be out in the spring of 2014. I’m not sure which story will be chosen as the second in the series. My publisher is still deciding. I have so far written 10 stories for this series, and I hope you get a chance to read them all!
The basic premise of the series is pretty simple. Boy and Monster are friends growing up together. The experiences they have will be familiar to kids and parents. Problems and adventures ensue and Boy is there to help Monster figure it all out. The books are all written in rhyme, which is not only fun to read but it was fun to write! I never actually wrote anything in rhyme until this book, but when I got the idea for this story it just seemed natural.
Wendy Grieb, the illustrator, did a fantastic job. She really nailed the look of the Monster and Boy, which pulls the whole story together.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
