Children’s author Mona K. McVay talks about her new book, Little Moo’s Big Adventure.
Please briefly describe your book . . .
My children’s book, Little Moo’s Big Adventure, is about a belted black and white male calf desiring to get across the road to make friends and gave someone to play with.
And can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Mona K. McVay. I have dreamed for years to become a well-known famous author. When I first started writing, I prayed for God to help, lead and guide my every written word and for Him to minister to each one of my readers. I want my books to bless each and everyone who buys and reads them.
Do you have any particular literary influences?
Funny question, or maybe it’s a funny answer. I honestly, do not like reading. I remember my mom always bought me those Golden children’s books, trying to get me to read, and all I would do is color in them. I had a couple favorite teachers that inspired me to write. One was Mrs. Crutchfield, who assigned creative writing assignments to us with a chosen topic she would pick out. I would always get my papers back with A+ or 100% with a smiley face. I was in 5th grade.
What inspired you to write your book?
This particular book, was inspired by a couple belted cows I always saw on my way to work. They looked to be a mother and young son, at the fence, looking across the road to other cows. As the mother was eating grass, and the young calf still looking across the road, it seemed to me the little calf was asking his mom if he could go and meet new friends. And so I started putting my thoughts down and low and behold, I had written my first children’s book.
What is the one message you would like to convey to your readers?
In this particular book, I would like to convey, that “Grass isn’t always greener on the other side.” Little Moo learns the meaning behind this expression, and one of life’s important messages.
Are you working on a sequel to your book?
No, I am not yet. When my book is requested for a sequel , then I shall work on one then.
Are there any events, marketing ideas, or promotions planned for your book?
Not to my knowledge anyway. None at this time. I’ve only been a first time published author for 3 days so far. Please feel free to mention any accolades you have received. I sure hope to!
