It wasn't too lengthy ago that I was launched to Harry Potter author, J. Ok. A few many years ago I met Harry Potter author, J.Ok. As a issue of reality, we visited an entire afternoon about the subject of publications. She enjoyed reading my publications. I control forever loved evaluation our sons a bedtime tale and even though they are outdated a adequate quantity without hesitation to read their personal publications in attendance are nonetheless occasions what time I read some thing I know they'll have and we chuckle dig we be killing: A joke paperback or an joyful nursery rhyme or even solitary of my (hilarious?) units.

A easy idea took hold and grew to become a dream...

And then, just 1 night later, I sat proper down and penned "Bobby Boat and his Fishmates In Trouble At Sea." After the two manuscripts were ready, I went to the library to see what the subsequent step ought to be. I didn't have much confidence in my chances... But I had a aspiration and the dream drove me.

Interacting with a packed audience, we informed tales about how we wrote our books and became acquainted with the art of publishing. Just prior to the event, I received copies of every of the two authors' books, as they did mine, and if you can believe it, one of those authors was none other than the famed creator of the Harry Potter series, Ms. Rowling herself!
