author interview This book is the first in a series of books about Franklin Bean and friends. What other issues are you planning to tackle? If you don’t know by now, Franklin Bean has a secret identity. He is superhero, Pancho Frijole. While Franklin Bean will continue to make everyday problems easier, Pancho Frijole will be conquering on a larger scale.
When you are not writing, what do you like to do in your spare time? Spare time? Ummm....... not sure what that is.
Some reviews have stated that this book has been engaging for children with ADHD. Why do you think this is? It is exciting for me to say that everyone loves Franklin Bean. All ages are falling in love with this magical little dog. Everyone wants to know what’s next. I guess for children with ADHD, the “what’s next?” keeps their interest.
Lastly, if you could speak to the children out there going through any issues the book tackles, what would you like to say to them? Be yourself. You are unique. Don’t ever let anyone take that away from you. Making people happy is a great feeling. Try it and smile!
How have you found the self-publishing journey? Any advice for the aspiring Indie Author? Write about what you love and enjoy it. Oh, and don’t plan on becoming a millionaire.
Meet Franklin Bean is out now and available in paperback, Kindle and Nook editions.
