Interviewing author Michael Joffroy
Q.1 when did you decide you were going to write a book?
That's a great question I have had or been responsible for two pugs in my life and have always thought that these types of dogs are hilarious and I like dragons and the magic behind them. So I figured why not write and illustrate a book about both of them.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books?
To be frank my first book was birthed in therapy it's a therapeutic book for children that are going through abuse so the name came naturally. My second book got its title from the main characters name and just the wacky adventure he is on and of course the Island he ended up on.
Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
I am now working on the continuation of "Wex's Wacky Adventure To Koma Keone Island" I am currently illustrating the book the manuscript is almost complete
Q 4. how long have you been writing?
I have been writing for three years now, it's gone by so fast.
Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?
Be patient, persistent, and never give up I know its difficult to commit I'm an illustrator by heart, my only enemy in this is myself.
Q 6. where can people find you online?
You can find me at greatbooksbymike.com which the website is currently being overhauled, so please be patient. I am also located on Facebook at Books By Mike. If you are also interested I have a channel on YouTube just look up my name Michael Joffroy
Q7 do you plan on making more books in the future?
Yes, I plan on making more books I am currently working on the second part of Wexs Wacky Adventure because it is a two-part book, with tons of illustrations, and I will also continue Wex's Wacky Adventure into a series, so more books to come.
