As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"

Childeren's Books with Tina Scott

Today my guest is Tina Scott has written several books including the children’s books listed below:

Product Details•When I Grow Up is a faith-based rhyming story suggesting to children that dreams are within their grasp as long as they read their scriptures and obey the commandments. WHEN I GROW UP is beautifully illustrated and written by Tina Scott. Scott gently opens the world of possibilities and encourages children and the parents who read to them to explore available options while choosing the right.

Product Details•How young is too young to teach a child the important principle of faith? What is faith? What does it feel like, and how can a child make their faith grow? Faith Is believing, feeling, trusting, and following. Our faith is like an invisible seed, if we take care of it, it will grow. Tina Scott is both author and illustrator for this elegant and strait-forward children’s picture book description: FAITH IS . . . Her illustrations are multicultural in nature, her language is easy to understand, her explanations are non-denominational and inclusive.

Product Details•In COYOTE'S GRAND ADVENTURE Coyote dreams of flying, but although he tries hard, he doesn’t know how to achieve his goal—until Buzzard accidentally gives him and idea. As a child I grew up watching Wylie Coyote get bested by Roadrunner time after time, but never give up. In Coyote’s Grand Adventure, Coyote dreams of flying and his nemesis is a buzzard and his side-kick is a lizard. The story is fresh and entertaining, illustrated in cartoon style, and sure to evoke smiles from all ages.

  Let's talk with Tina.
How long have you been writing?

Writing essays and short stories was always my favorite part of school, and as a young girl, I wanted to be a writer/illustrator. It wasn’t until after I took creative writing in college that I remembered my dream and started working toward it as a goal.

What genre do you write and why?
I took Kid’s Lit in college, and therefore started writing children’s picture books first. I have seven kids of my own, a growing number of grandchildren, and twenty years of experience in the Cub Scout program and working with young children, so writing picture books is a natural pursuit. However, I enjoy writing contemporary YA, as well as historical. My current project is a fantasy written for “mature” women.

Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you to overcome it?
My favorite thing to do is to alternate between writing and painting. When I get stuck on one, I move to the other. It seems to clear my head.

What is your next project?
I can’t tell yet. I have two more children’s picture books that I’d like to illustrate and publish. I have a second historical romance in the works, as well as a contemporary ghost story. First, I’m finishing my women’s fantasy.

Okay are you ready for the Power round questions?
Favorite food? I love ice cream. My dad made ice cream on Sundays growing up, and it brings back fond memories.
Favorite dessert? Cheesecake, and apple crisp
Jeans and T-shirt, or designer clothes? I love casual. I also enjoy quality. However, I see no reason to spend a ton of cash on clothes
Guilty pleasure? Sleeping in or staying up late, and being home alone on occasion.
Favorite flower? I love flowers in general. They're so bright and pretty. I have silk ones all over in my house. I love the smell of carnations, and roses.
Favorite sport? I don't do sports. I love to walk, and I enjoyed ice-skating and roller-skating when I was younger. And climbing trees. No tree was safe from me when I was a kid.

Thanks for stopping by. Thanks for having me.
