Hello! to Shana Hollowell all the way from the USA!

5 Questions to Know You Better…


Perhaps most important – tea or coffee, or maybe hot chocolate?

Definitely coffee!

Of all the characters you have created, who is your favourite?

A squirrel that sings. He will be featured in one of my upcoming children’s picture books.

Do you have a particular place where you write –  can you show us a picture?

When the weather is nice, I love to sit outside and write at the koi pond in my backyard. It is so peaceful.

Where do you find your inspiration and ideas?

I find inspiration in everyday items. For my first children’s picture book, “Little Mouse’s Sweet Treat,” I came up with the idea from a cat toy. When my son Grayson was just learning to walk, he loved to pick up the cat’s mouse and walk around with it. I would say “eek, eek… little mouse is hungry and wants a treat.” The story developed from there. I love making up and telling him stories, especially ones about animals.

What are you working on currently, and when can we expect to read it?

One of my children’s stories is currently being illustrated. My illustrator is painting the pictures, as she did for my other book. I am hoping to publish it this fall.
