The idea for Ava the Monster Slayer was planted when I watched my youngest child volunteer to go into dark rooms at age four. She would get an item her older brother forgot (he would not dare enter the darkness) or race up dark stairs if I needed something from my bedroom. Her fearlessness got me thinking…there’s a story here. I wrote the manuscript in 20 minutes…then spent three years revising with help from a critique group and an editor. I have a better grasp on how to create picture books now, and with our editor Julie’s input, I am excited to learn even more!
