Questions for Lance

Q: What is one thing you want people to know about your book?

A:  This book is a true story about my experience growing up dealing with anxiety and depression.  I never learned to ride a bike until I had my own kids and wanted to teach them.  I wanted to teach them not only to ride a bike but to conquer fears.  To learn that anything worth doing doesn't happen over night.  It takes practice. 

Q: Why did you become a writer?

A: I always wanted to write a children's book since I was a teenager.  The lock down of 2020 was the prime time to do so.  I sat down and the story came to me over the course of 2 days and the illustrations over the course of 6 months. I am so very blessed with the gift of writing. 

Q: Do you have any advise for new and upcoming authors?

A: Yes.  If you have an idea.  Just write. Let it flow out of you.  Keep writing until you have something that you can build on and finish.  Most importantly, believe in yourself.  You are destined for great things :)
