Welcome to the 2nd Annual Children’s Book Week Kid Lit Giveaway Hop, hosted by Youth Literature Reviews and Mother Daughter Book Reviews. I am a middle-grade author. I write for kids.
You ask: Why write for kids? My answer: Why not?
Books can transport even the shyest child into a safe place to explore their feelings and emotions within a new world that may—or may not—share the same fears, values, rules that they hold.
As a youth, I enjoyed such fun series as The Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. Judy Blume’s many books helped me deal with the changes that tweens experience. Anne of Green Gable, Tom Sawyer, and Pippi Longstocking (not realistic fiction—but definitely a fun read) are characters you can’t help but love.
The main character in my Ginnie West Adventures series has been compared to all of these wonderful books and characters and I am honored by the comparison.

When Monique Bucheger isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events. Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children, an adorable granddaughter, a son-in-law, three cats, and many real and imaginary friends. She is the author of several books and plans to write many more.
