Hi there Wottareaders, here you have my interview with Kimber Fox Morgan. But before we get to know her better, let me show your her amazing book:
Tip toe, tip toe, crackle, crunch!
Chipper the Fox sneaks through the forest to spread cheer to his weary friends. Will his merry making be a success? Or will a smelly fish disaster and a log pile tumble ruin his plans? This sweet, ryhming tale of Chipper’s love and determination will show kids of all ages that ♥KINDNESS ALWAYS WINS! ♥
What can you tell us about you?
I’m a fun wife, and imperfect mom of 3 crazy kiddos and 2 little lemon (problematic) dogs.
I try to live my strengths the best I can. I like to say I am creative, not crafty. I’m a homemade Halloween costume type of mom. I let my kids mix the play doh. I bake fun birthday cakes (cutely but far from perfection). I love a homemade valentine and a school project. But please don’t make me chaperone a field trip!
I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. I enjoyed my first job as a character at Walt Disney World! I went to Florida State University and have a major in advertising and a minor in English. I worked in advertising and event planning before transitioning to blogging and writing.
One book, one movie, one song, and one videogame?
American Dirt – eye opening!
Forest Gump – heartwarming
You’ve Got a Friend by James Taylor – my father- daughter dance song
Videogame – Tetris
If you had to define yourself just using one sentence of your novels, which one would be?
Since it’s a children’s book with limited sentences, I chose a few. But I’m ALWAYS freezing in my house and my hubby, and I are constantly having thermostat wars!
Scout’s den is extra cold this year. It leaves her with a chill.
She tries to warm her icy paws. “Please thaw! They never will!”
Do you have any rituals for writing? Any kind of habit or goal to achieve every day?
After about 4 cups of coffee, I sit at the kitchen counter and try to let the words flow. If it’s a good day, I can write and write and get it all down. I tend to write more and then edit later. I don’t write in short spurts.
Do you take real people you know and put them in your stories?
Sometimes! But usually only certain aspects or little bits and pieces of people’s personalities…
Let’s talk about procrastination, what is the most absurd thing you’ve been doing when you should be writing?
Cleaning the kitchen, walking the dogs, scrolling Instagram, taking a nap. I love a nap!
Tell us about your book, what do you think is the most interesting aspect of it?
I developed the character, Chipper the Fox, a few years ago to go into a holiday kit for busy parents. The kits were full of mischievous fun. I have put the holiday kits down for a silent night, but I felt like Chipper had more “merry” to make and love to give. Thus, I developed him into a storybook character. Chipper Makes Merry is about gracious giving and spreading kindness. Chipper sees his friends struggling with the cold winter in different ways and attempts to spread kindness and help them out. He is faced with obstacles along the way and is unsuccessful at many times. But with perseverance he overcomes disaster and is successful. Little acts of kindness can go a long way.
What are you writing right now?
I have two additional children’s books I am working on. One is another “Chipper” book and the other is more of a family comedy children’s book. Both are very different writing styles and messages. I’m at the editing point and I’m trying to figure out where the stories should really go and fine tune them a little bit.
Hope you enjoyed this interviews, also, give a chance to Chipper the Fox! also, don’t miss the Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja books, they are great too.
