The setting happens in Canada. I went to Canada when I was two years  old. with my Mom’s friends. Canada is only a border away from New York.

The illustrations are good. The illustrator uses her colored pencil. It turned out so beautiful. I loves to draw pictures with colored pencil.

My favorite character is PJ because he is a mouse. When PJ got bought from the store, he fell out of the bag. He set underneath the bench. PJ’s adventures begin,

Emily and her Mom found PJ and keep him for good. PJ is a lucky mouse. He is an adventurous mouse. He and Emily go on adventures together. They explored the Niagara Falls, They also went to a flower garden  called Butchart Gardens. After they explore the flower garden, they saw fireworks. They visited the Rocky Mountains. PJ fell into a crevasse.  They got him out thankfully.

I do liked the story. I think the other kids will enjoy the book too.

I hope to visit Australia someday

Australia is one of my bucket list. I wish I could visit this beautiful country someday. This book The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Queensland is such a fun book to read not only for kids but also for adults. I LOVED how the illustrator did with the second book. it turned out so beautiful. 

The book is so full of adventures. It is fun to read PJ’s adventures in Australia. You will also learned animals that you only found in Australia. The best travel experienced without living your house. Kids will learned everything from geography to animals.

This is one of the best kids book to read especially if travelling for the first time. It is perfect to bring a toy with them while traveling. My daughter brought one stuff animals but lost it somewhere in Japan airport. This book especially the first one reminds me of her travel experienced three years ago.

Do you have another profession besides writing?

Yes and no. Before writing we were flipping houses, buying, fixing and selling. I got allergic to the dust and fumes and so had to re-invent myself. I don’t have much to do with the houses now, but I do still occasionally help out with some aspect of it. I prefer the design stage, planning and purchasing, and putting the whole thing together before to after. I also have 4 kids. Being a mom is not officially recognized as a profession, but it still keeps one plenty busy.

How long have you been writing?

I have only been writing for about 2 years. I started in 2013, took some college courses to get me started and developed my character and stories from the homework assignments and went from there. The classmates I had were very positive about my work so it was an encouraging start. I had never done anything remotely like this before so everything was new to me and it was a huge learning curve. I published 2 books in 2014 and 1 in 2015. It took about a year to get the first book written, artwork done and then have it made into a book. After the learning curve of getting the first one done it has only taken about 8 months to create the other books. I hope to have the next one out in the middle of next year. It is written but the artwork has not yet been started.

Do you ever get writer’s block?

Yes, some days writing is harder than other days. Unfortunately a lot of great thoughts come at about 3 am. I think “I will write that down in the morning” and then of course I can’t remember the details of my thoughts once morning rolls around. Sometimes writing seems easy, other times it seems very slow and painful. But when looking back you can’t really tell which parts were the easy bits and which the more difficult bits, so I kind of don’t worry about writer’s block and just write what I can when I can.

Do you write every day?

No. I tend to write quite a bit all at once when working on a book and then have a couple months or more when I concentrate on other things. My daughter, Megan, tends to do the artwork after I have finished the manuscript, so while this is happening I focus on other things that need doing in life.
