What makes you passionate about writing?
My passion for writing derives from life experiences and the events that have stuck in my mind.
Do you have a writing routine?
No, not at this time, but would like to say evenings and early mornings are good when there is not a lot of noise and I have time to think.
What is the title of your book?
The Boy That Grew Teeth In His Ear
What genre does your book fall under?
Childrenâ€™s Picture Book
So you are an artist too.Â Are you taking new clients?
I am always up for more work and a challenge.
Can we buy your drawings one by one or do we have to buy a set?
You can buy them anyway you would like.
How do you charge for drawings, by inch, square feet or what?
I would probably charge by the page. I am pretty quick at the sketches; the computer part of coloring them in may take some time. I would say anywhere from $40 to $95 per page. A lot would depend on what the author is looking for in their books.
Where can we find more about your work?Â
I have my own sign shop. You can go to my website at http://www.ronissigns.com or go to my Facebook page Roni Kennedy and look and review some of my work. There are not many sketches but I have an accredited art degree from The Antonelli School of Arts in Cincinnati, Ohio. I graduated in 1975 and The Good Lord has told us to develop our talents so I have! Thank You!
You are welcome. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Donâ€™t Be A Bully
Is your book self-published or represented by an agency?
It is published through Idea Creations Press.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It took two days to write and two weeks to illustrate.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I would probably compare the story to LDS church manuals that they teach in Primary, only mine giving the information about bullying in a story way; donâ€™t be mean and hurtful to others. Be a Christian and be kind.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
First my mother and second my enemies and those that have either bullied me in some way or have been rude and disrespectful.
What else about your book might pique the readerâ€™s interest?
The colorful illustrations are eye catching and portray the events very well.
