Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am Millie. I grew up in Colorado and lived as a free spirit and was creative as I could have been as a child. I have 2 children and a loving husband. We have written and illustrated one book together.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Our newest book is “If Animals Could Pray… What Would They Say?” It is a simple story about a few animals praying in fun and exciting ways. We were inspired by our two boys and we desired to be able to work from home and also to help them and other children understand how easy it is to pray and how those prayers are answered. Sometimes with peace, sometimes with a twist, sometimes with no, and sometimes with an exciting yes!!!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write with a candle on hand.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The Bible, different black businesses in general, God, and our children.
What are you working on now?
We are trying to decide one a couple of ideas at the moment, we have thrown around the idea of doing a superhero type children’s book to be vague and also thought of a humorous story about a father.
