Blook Tour! The Adventures of Baby Jaimie! And GIVEAWAY! (**25th August 2012**)

The Adventure of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie has a Crush


1. How did you get started?
I was living in Florida when I began writing the first book, The Adventures of Baby Jaimie. I was a volunteer at the local library and when a little girl walked by me I heard her asking questions about my disability to her mother. The mother didn't know and basically just shushed the child. This has happened repeatedly during my life, but for some reason that one particular time lit a spark under me telling me it was time to tell my story. Shortly thereafter I also found out my sister was expecting her first child and that intensified my desire to educate children.

2. What steps have you taken to succeed?

I've done a lot of marketing. I am on all the major social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+ and GoodReads. I also own and run my own blog and website. I make it a point to post messages to my followers and write press releases whenever I have a giveaway or promotion going on. I also contact various internet radio stations and have gotten interviews on a few of them. Of course, I also do blog tours.

3. Have blog tours helped you reach more fans?

Definitely. They also help me connect to the fans I already have on a more personal level. I consider myself to be an accessible author who loves to connect with new readers and get messages from them. I answer all messages I receive, but most people don't realize about me until they read about it in interviews like these.

4. Do movies inspire you and if so, which ones?

Although I watch movies sometimes while I am writing I can't say there are a lot of movies that inspire me to write. However, lately a movie has been creeping into my mind as I work on a paranormal novel. The movie is Donnie Darko. I'm not sure why it does, but I'm sure I'll eventually figure it out.

5. How do you build your character world?

The best character worlds for me build themselves. Baby Jaimie was really the only one I put effort into building. I styled her after myself with my real life family as my model. Seven years later I am finding out she's not so much like me after all. Basically, my characters take on lives all their own and I just write what they show and tell me.

6. Do you prefer technical or free style writing?

Definitely free style

7. Are you a dirty or clean writer?

I write for Children and YA, I'm basically a clean writer.

8. If you could go back in time and meet one person who would it be and why?

Peggy Parish because I loved her Amelia Bedelia series so much as a child and actually, still do. I would love to be able to pick her brain on how to tell a good story while keeping it funny.

9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

It is my hope that not only will my book series be widely known, but I am also hoping it will be a popular cartoon series for PBS.

10. Where can we find your page/address?

My website can be found at and I can be emailed any time at People can also connect with me on:

The Blurb....!

From the minute she met him everyone thought Baby Jaimie's first crush was Derek. Derek even thought so. That's why he asked her first grade teacher, Mrs. Smith if he could come visit her. The day of the visit didn't go as planned. While Derek was introducing himself a new student, Jack, entered the room and stole everyone's attention. Especially Baby Jaimie's. For that reason Derek took an instant disliking to the new kid. Baby Jaimie is forced to choose between Derek and Jack and she doesn't know what to do. Is there a way to combine old friends with new friends? Can't they all just get along? Find out in The Adventures of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie Has A Crush.
