interviewing children's author Stacy Bauer

Q.1.  when did you decide you were going to write a book?



I've  enjoyed writing since I was a child. I became a teacher and had 2 children, but I've always wanted to write a book, so last year, I took a leave from my teaching job and took the leap to become a published author!
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books


I wanted to write about something I know a lot  about, so my books are based on my 2 children. I wanted to use animals for the characters because I thought then every child could relate to the characters. I chose kangaroos because they are cute, can jump high and get into things and can put things in their pouches The series name is "Cami Kangaroo and Wyatt Too" because my kids are named Cami and Wyatt and "kangaroo" and "too" rhyme.

The challenges I have overcome

The challenges I have overcomeHi, My Name is Angelika and I thought I would share with you the challenges I have overcome.
I have had epilepsy my whole life in grade school I was way behind in school I could not even hold a pencil my teacher was doing all the work for me.
 they  had no patience with me I had bad ADHD I had the Grand mal seizures at the time they were horrible it was not easy being a special needs child in school but I  still have challenges today being an adult.
My mom took me out of the school and homeschooled me she took the time to sit with and teach me what the public school could not teach me at the time my mom took the time to help me hold a pencil learn how to read and write as well as helping me spell words and many other schools would be teaching like math and many others.
She helped me write better by writing letters to family and friends and letters to my great grandma I enjoyed writing letters and I still enjoy writing letters and having pen pals today.
She home…
