Books develop and nourish kids’ imaginations, expanding their worlds. Picture books introduce young children to the world of art and literature. Novels and nonfiction books stimulate kids’ sensory awareness, helping kids to see, hear, taste, feel, and smell on an imagined level. Books inform our imaginations, inspiring creativity.
This Children's Book Author Spotlight Series is going to showcase independent children's book authors and their works. We strive to bring you the best there is to offer and an insight into the world of children's books!
This week we are featuring author Michelle Cabiness.
Tell us a little about yourself and how you came to write your first book.
I’ve always been a poet. I have a passion for kids and seeing to it that they have a positive and happy upbringing. Putting my passions into books only made sense.
What inspired the idea for your book?
The relationships a child builds throughout their grooming years is so important. I wanted to show an example of a father daughter relationship.
What part of the book was the most fun to write?
Deciding what to highlight in a typical father/daughter outing was the most fun for me.
How long did it take you to write this book?
About a week.
Has writing and publishing a book changed the way you see yourself?
Not at all.
Who has been the biggest supporter of your writing?
My husband. He’s there to hear the rough draft and make suggestions on how to make it better.
What books did you grow up reading?
The most memorable books were, A Rainy Day and Love you forever.
Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?
I’m a mother of 1 and expecting another.
