Well… off it goes.

My debut picture book manuscript for Monster Mum has been sent to its first slush pile.

I seriously believe they need to change it to something more positive…like a lush pile!

Who is Monster Mum by the way?

It’s me… well technically my alter ego.

I use to take the edge off challenging parenting times. My girls find it hilarious when I use my monster voice. I get the message across that I am at my limit and at the same time, stop myself from unconsciously yelling like a crazy person.

I believe this picture book has the potential to, at least, give readers (parent and child) an opportunity to share a laugh.

Maybe even give them the space to start creating solutions together for use during emotionally charged times.

Time will tell!
