Lily's Delicious Cupcakes (Author Interview)

Lily’s Delicious Cupcakes looks like a great children’s book.  Any plans to make it into a series?
Yes, indeed it is actually the first of the Lily Chronicles. Many more exciting children’s stories coming in this series.

What do you think makes a children’s book?
I strongly believe that Children’s books should be made up of fun interesting concepts and themes, while also teaching valuable lessons. Beautiful eye catching illustrations are also very key. 

What inspired you when writing Lily’s Delicious Cupcakes?
I was inspired by the fact that someday I would also have kids. I wanted them to know that there are so much fun colorful things for a parent and child to do together. To foster relationships and capture meaningful beautiful moments.

What are your ambitions for your writing career?  Full time?  Part time?
I love writing it is truly my passion. If possible I would love to be a writer full time.

When did you decide to become a writer?
My entire life I have loved writing. I have always wanted to be a writer.

When writing Lily’s Delicious Cupcakes did anything stand out as particularly challenging?

I think that I was a bit scared that kids and parents would not be interested in kitchen content, that kids may not be interested in a book written about baking cupcakes.

How did you come up with the story in Lily’s Delicious Cupcakes?
It’s actually a true story of me baking with my God daughter. I saw how much fun she had and how much laughter and happiness it brought us both. I guess wanted to share the experience.

What do you like to do when not writing?
I love the outdoors and nature.
