GREAT INTERVIEW FROM AUTHOR KIM PATRICK

What made you want to write a children’s book?

Children take in information at such a phenomenal rate compared to adults. Learning to love yourself is something that once you learn it, you never forget it. Why not start with the very young? 

In this book you focus on self worth and loving yourself. Why?

I wanted to write a book that would be interesting and funny, but also offer more than just a good giggle. Maybe if more kids learned to appreciate their uniqueness instead of trying to conform, then we’d have much happier adults in the world. 

How do you decide what to write about for a children’s book?

I can’t speak to what other writers do, but for me it starts out as something that has really caused an emotional reaction in me. Watching kids on a playground bully another kid kicked off this book. Luckily, the parents stepped in and the situation was diffused, but I always wondered about the poor kid that was picked on. How did he feel? How did his mother deal with the fall out from that? 

How do you make time to write? 

I have to schedule it in or it never gets done! Some of the biggest writing distractions for me are movies, my animals demanding playtime, and having to stop and eat. 

Will you be writing another book?

After I finish writing a book I usually give myself time to reconnect with the world and my family. Then, when it’s time I’ll know it and another book will happen.

Greenland’s vast and daunting landscape is almost completely covered with ice and snow.

With the help of some friendly Greenland sled dogs, they arrive in the charming village of Siorapaluk and befriend a young Inuit, Malik, and his family. They soon learn that Malik’s father and his group have gone missing while on an expedition. The team goes in search of them, at their own risk. Before long, they are caught up in a treacherous avalanche and trapped on a glacier that has broken off from the mainland. Hope arrives from a powerful source as they bear witness to an astonishing and beautiful miracle from the Earth’s living creatures.

AND NOW AN INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR Nabila Khashoggi

What is Land of the Midnight Sun all about?

This is the fifth book in the Spartan & the Green Egg series and it is set in Greenland. The gang of kids, along with their helpful alien friend, named Egg, must help rescue a film crew and their guides from an iceberg that has broken away from the mainland. It tells a great story, IMHO, but also uses climate change and its impact as a backdrop. 

Do you have a favorite among the books you’ve written?

Actually, it’s always the one I’ve just finished. Probably because it is the one that is freshest in my mind!

How did you get started writing children’s books?

I got started on a whim. I used to tell my son, Spartan, bedtime stories that involved his favorite toy (a green egg). It kind of took on a life of its own and I took the leap into making them into a graphic novel. 

Why did you choose to write your book as a graphic novel? 

I decided that using a graphic novel format would make the book more accessible to a wider range of children, especially those readers who maybe weren’t fans of reading. I also am a comic book fan and grew up loving them. 

What’s next?

Well, I’m working on Book 6 in the series as well as working as the spokeswoman for The Children for Peace. It’s a nonprofit organization that helps children in impoverished places around the world to obtain equipment, books, desks, and so forth for their schools. 


Meet the Author:

When her eldest son was a toddler, Nabila used to entertain him with made-up stories about a boy who traveled the world inside a live green egg that just so happened to be an alien from another planet. She turned the tales into a colorful children¹s graphic novel series, Spartan and the Green Egg, with the intention of introducing children to environmental and cultural themes around the world.

A portion of all proceeds from the Spartan and the Green Egg book series, toys and accessories is donated to The Children for Peace ONLUS. Based in Italy, this non-governmental organization helps young people worldwide who are living in challenging circumstances obtain their essential needs such as food, medical help and educational opportunities. Nabila currently lives in New York and has two sons.
