Aan Sinanta Believes in Nurturing Children
Writing children's books was not what Aan Sinanta had imagined he would end up doing when he was growing up on their family dairy farm in Anchorage, Alaska. Theirs was a close knit family who always had each otherâ€™s back. Along with his parents and siblings, Aan was fortunate enough to grow up in the company of his grandparents who had a big influence on him. In particular his grandfather, Aan considers his grandfather to be a source of motivation. As a child, it was his grandfather who read stories to him, and encouraged him to read.
In college, Aan had no plans of being a writer. He studied World History, and his wife Cathy, whom he met in college, was a biological sciences major. While Cathy was working at her job as an RN, Aan was working at a travel firm. It was many years later, that he realized the significance of all that reading in his childhood because thatâ€™s what made him a good writer. He is a food lover, and enjoys taking his family out to try new restaurants. He enjoys living in the northernmost state of the US, and feels very patriotic towards Alaska. When he retires, he hopes to stay in Alaska and spend his last years admiring the beautiful landscapes.
Besides writing, Aan Sinanta enjoys a variety of winter sports like snowboarding, snowmobiling, sledding, and skiing. He also likes to go for walks and treks with his children whenever possible. He is a great supporter of Sarah Palin, and has been a significant contributor to her campaigns.Aan began writing a few years into his job, and his first book was completed in two years. He was inspired to write for children because he believes that they are the future. If nurtured properly, they have the potential to achieve great things.
