Flying With Kindness Story:
Sibling rivalry, a cranky little boy, and a frustrated mother could be any parent’s typical day.  “Flying With Kindness”, is a deeply moving story and travel adventure to the Grand Canyon.
It’s a book about a boy name Basil and the normal sibling rivalry with his younger sister, Ava. Basil has a strong personality. In addition, kindness doesn’t seem to come natural for Basil.  Basil’s parents are trying to teach him the importance of kindness. He thinks kindness is too much work. By chance, Basil’s family meets an old lady, an encounter which set up a chain of events and teachable moments in kindness.

Movies and writing

Ever wonder what the two have in common? To me, watching a good movies jolts my imagination in a way for new ideas about future books. I like twist in turns in a movie and how the story develops. It took me about two and a half years to develop my story arc because I also got writers block and needed a break. For me, sometimes watching a good movie gave me burst of energy. Other times, I could hear a story from a conversation, and gather new ideas. Movies and books both have a beginner, middle, and ending. Sometimes book thrillers become great movies. Children’s book are especially hard.  Most people assume it’s easy. However, you have two audiences children and adults. In my opinion, you cannot develop a good children’s story overnight. What you put into it is what you get out of it.
