Creating Children and Young Adult Stories, Armed with Imagination and a Pen

What Inspires A Story

on June 24, 2012

Recently I did a guest blog post about what inspired me to write The Nutt Family:  An Acorny Adventure.  It was thrilling that my book was nominated to be featured by This Kid Reviews Books.  I hope you’ll check out the full article here on Randomize Me.

Let me start off by saying that fall is by far my favorite season of the year. Thanksgiving is my holiday. I seriously wonder sometimes if it was invented just for me. I love to cook this gigantic meal and surround myself with family. That is my idea of heaven. My family can attest to the fact that I am a fall freak! It is no surprise to them that I wrote a children’s story about one of the symbols of fall…….acorn nuts.

This story took shape in the fall of 2009. My two children and I were out in our backyard gathering acorns to use to decorate our mantle and dining room table. It’s funny how a handful of nuts can inspire us.
