My First Author Interview!

Right on the heels of my first publication, J is for Jesus, is my first author interview! It is featured in the most recent issue of Momentum magazine:

Momentum Article_Interview with the Author

Excerpts from the interview – just in case you can’t read the 0.05 font above – appear below:

Momentum Magazine: How did this book come about?
Meg DeBoe: I had just self-published my fourth book [I Love You When You’re Stinky] and was showing it to Kathy Mears [executive director, Elementary Department for NCEA]. While she was flipping through it, Kathy just looked up at me and said, “I want to publish a children’s book. I want you to write it.” About a year later she was flipping through this new book, J is for Jesus.

MM: Did your own children inspire the book?
MD: Definitely. My kids are my guinea pigs; my built-in focus group. I thought about them every step of the process, because your children will be very honest with you if they don’t like it.

MM: Why were certain images selected – Eve for “E” for example?
MD: The short answer is phonics. We wanted this to be a teaching tool for parents and teachers, so we made sure that the initial sounds of each word are conducive to that.
