Six year old Nevaeh wants to be something she already is. She will soon learn that her wish to be a princess takes a little bit more than just asking. Lessons on self-discovery are taught by her Mimi who makes her understand that being a princess takes work.
Lessons taught in Princess Nevaeh:
- Mimi addresses behavioral skills: fighting, bullying, listening, and obeying (issues ALL kids must deal with)
- Teaches manners and how to conduct themselves.
- It encourages listening skills pertaining to adults, parents and teachers. In regards to listening to adults this is a great opportunity for parents to share with the child the difference between those you can trust and those you can’t.
How interesting. Tell me more about your Christmas book?
Princess Nevaeh is a cute story about a little girl who wants to be a princess. What little girl doesn’t want to be a princess? I’ve got a daughter and nieces who all loved playing princess and watching princess movies when they were little.
But being a princess is more than just dressing up in pretty dresses and wearing a crown. It is about how to behave as a princess by obeying your parents and teachers. It is about treating your friends nicely and never hitting or biting! It is about never being a bully or calling anyone a mean name. In other words, what makes a little girl a princess is what is on the inside rather than the outside.
Tell us 3 fun facts about yourself?

How long have you been a writer or known that was something you wanted to do?
I’ve been writing since 2008.
Where do you receive your inspiration or ideas for your books?
With Princess Nevaeh, my first granddaughter name is Nevaeh. She asked me to write a book with her name. Her desire to have her name in a book really resonated in my heart. Of course, I told her I would and therefore, this book was published.
Why did you choose to self-publish? Or go with the publisher you are with?
Iâ€™ve been self-publishing for quite some time. As a self-publisher, you own all rights to your book, whereas a traditional publisher would likely own the rights. If they lose interest in your book, you cannot print additional copies unless you purchase those rights back.Â Self-publishing gives you the final say on the direction of your book. Your book reflects your vision and not someone elseâ€™s
How often do you write?
I write every day. Either Iâ€™m writing guest post, or articles.
Tell us about some of your future projects?
Some of my future projects include a sequel to one of my fiction books and another childrenâ€™s book
What are some of your favorite books?
A few of my favorite books are: The Bible and T.D Jakes Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive.
If you could co-write a book with another author, who would it be?
Fiction author Michelle Stimson.
Do you have any advice for others who dream of being an author?
Just do it. Research the industry and learn as much as possible.
