When we initially thought to write and illustrate a book, the idea was to have it done only for our children and godchildren. We wanted to write a book where children could relate to the characters and identify with their fears and frustrations surrounding Covid-19. This idea quickly evolved into one of much greater significance as the inspiration got hold of us, God opened doors and He built connections. We soon realized that the brainchild around using a monster to describe difficulties, help children build hope, and process their thoughts and feelings were much bigger than we could have ever imagined. We saw the potential to help more children than the 5 we planned on and became so excited about the possibility to cover topics like ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia, Abuse and abandonment, to name a few.
After what felt like years, but was in actual fact just days, Strong Anchor was born!
We all worked tirelessly and after weeks of late night calls and meetings our first “little” project, ‘Monster in My Neighbourhood!’ has been completed and sent off to the printers! We are super excited and can’t wait to start shipping the orders. Be sure to pre-order your copy NOW!
