First, I think your mission is admirable and I too believe laughter is the best medicine. I write adult comedy which is fairly easy as I'm an adult (although my wife begs to differ). How to you go about learning what today's youngster will chuckle at without going over or under their heads?

Hello Stephen,
It's nice to meet you and thank you for your kind words... We must always remember that our children are our future and that we must all do our part to support and help them along the way, so 'here I am' to do my part. :) If only one child smiles or giggles while reading one of my stories - I feel my job is done.

Do you illustrate your books yourself? (

When I was young I read a lot of mythology. One I found it exciting, the Greek myths and the Romans, Native American folklore, etc., but mostly because they explained the world around me in such simplistic ways and I found that refreshing. Do you approach the children's story with the same simplicity? Do you try and incorporate any moral lessons as well? I was a semi-professional magician for many years and did that with my kid's shows. I tried to help them see why things were as they were in our world through simple demonstrations and story-tales with magical effects to drive home the main points and to show how they can make things better. I have not tried to write any books for children, I do adult/older teen fiction, but I do admire those that have written for children. I am curious, why did you say above that you wanted to bring laughter to victims of crime? What type of crimes and why these children in particular?
Thanks, Stephan James Gathings:

How did you get the ideas for your books: A Fish with a Wish and O Little Star?
How did you decide to set the price you have picked for the books?
What makes your books special, why should people choose them over other books in your genre?

Your bio note says you like laughter, beaches, horses, the night sky and snowmen. Could you envision writing a story about a laughing snowman who rides a horse down the beach at night?

Good Afternoon, everyone! I'm sorry I am a little late today; I got myself a pretty good knee injury this past weekend and claiming it to be a distraction is an understatement, since my bones are getting too old for injuries! I'm here now and have submitted my interview questions to the web Goddess, so if you have any additional questions or comments I will be happy to answer.
