Spring is in the air. What a great time to add to your picture book library with a newly discovered author. Meet Denise L. Jefferson. She’s the author of “Button Joe”. It’s a humorous picture book about a boy that likes to eat buttons. She is also the author of “Dragons Don’t Take Vacations”. I had the chance to talk with Denise about where she gets her story ideas, what inspires her, and what writing means to her.
1) Do you have a writing routine? Share what writing routine works for you.
Denise L. Jefferson: I really don’t have a writing style or routine. I gather my book ideas from almost anywhere. Sometimes I like the different environment when traveling, because you get to experience or interact on a different scale. Or people watching might spark something?
2) What subjects would you like to write about in future projects?
Denise L. Jefferson: Future projects. I’d like to expand to adult Christian or inspiration.
3) What is writing to you in one sentence?
Denise L. Jefferson: Writing to me is like dreaming on paper. Your thoughts and imagination can be limitless.
Denise L. Jefferson’s book “Button Joe” is about a scrappy little baby boy that loves to eat buttons. As he grows, he has to learn to break this habit. What he learns along the way makes a humorous, warm story for the whole family.
“Button Joe” is available at Amazon.com.
