Do you write about true life experiences?
Absolutely. I wrote the picture book,
WILMA THE WILD WHITE WHALE after meeting the real beluga
When my husband and I were on vacation in Nova Scotia we came
across a young boy at the dock, in the town of Guysborough.
said, "Do you want to meet our residential whale?"
I said, "Do I!"
told us to come back the next morning at ten. That was when
Wilma always came to the harbor to play with the children.
The next morning, when my husband and I showed up, Wilma arrived
right on time.
Wilma was the size of a bus and was wild, but I still played
with her for an hour. I had the experience of a lifetime.
First I kayaked with her. She loved to swim under and around
my kayak and she kept on taking off my "skeg". She
allowed me to pat her.
I jumped into the cold water of the Guysborough Harbour and
swam with Wilma. I even rode on her back!
just had to write a picture book about Wilma.
