About the Author
My journey as a book author started in the summer of 2021 with one of the school assignments of my kids. The assignment required them to create a book cover. My daughter took an A4 sheet and drew a large circle at the center of the page and sketched a mansion inside the circle. She then filled the remaining blank space on the page with some crooked lines that resembled trees.
Soon after, I was asked, “how’s my book cover looking?”. Not able to make much sense out of it, I took the easy way out and asked her to color it. The circle got colored black, the house got colored purple and the trees got colored black. The sheet was duly returned for my interpretation once more.
As I was scratching my head to figure out the book cover drawing, she enlightened me that this cover is for a book on a Spooky Mansion. Now that the assignment was complete, I though a smart way to keep them busy was to ask them to write a short story based on the cover. Little did I realize that it would give birth to a whole new world of Write-Along Story Books.
As the kids started writing the story, it was easy to agree on its settings but when it came to juicy details, we had endless discussions and debates on fixing characters and events. All of us had ideas that could make the story equally interesting, adventurous, and magical.
It made me think if our story books today can give us the flexibility to script parts of the story; add our characters; introduce new twists-n-turns; the stories and the books would last with us forever. The thought let to creation of our first write along book – Fearless Sia and The Mystery of the Spooky Mansion. Its one book with unlimited possibilities to create and re-create a story to make it the best one ever. I hope you would enjoy this book like no other.
Go ahead, enter the magical world of “Write Along” stories with one of a kind Write-Along story book – Fearless Sia and The Mystery of the Spooky Mansion.
