My name is Adam and I've developed 6 picture books for children, with another 9 picture books in process. My illustrator is working as fast as possible. I write for children, because as a child my mother thought me to never give up, be ambitious, dream big and to never let anyone tell me that I can't. A lot of what she thought me , began with her reading to me at night, on to took it upon myself to never having children of my own to pass the messages on to, I took it upon myself to reach out to children across the world . To give the, will, values, and determination she instilled in me as a child, away to other children, is my way of carrying on my mothers legacy. Further more my books are educational and all of my books teach life values. I believe that too many children are growing up without learning basic life values .Believe in yourself , people will dought you ,and never stop trying until the day you win. Life will knock you down. Always getting back up, I. This story shouldn't go without being told. To over come such poverty and oppression in the 1960'ssouth ,and become a medical professional is truly remarkable . In 2009 my mother Sharon Ferguson unexpectedly passed away age 53 , after 30 years in the nursing field. In her life she achieved a bachelors and masters degree in nursing science. She went on become a Gerontology Clinical nurse Specialist. She grew up in Arkansas picking cotton for a dollar a day with her dad .My grandfather Nathanial Ferguson, a world war 2 veteran, would sometimes go without food, to ensure his children ate. Even though your not here with me in person , I want to make you proud and do for others, what you've done for me. The joy love, and wisdom you gave to me, is the gift I give to the world. Your sprit lives on through me and my books .I love you, and forever missed. You inspire me . My name Tanya. I am attempting to start Walker books. A publishing company for works of child literature, I have already taken the steps of obtaining a business license and finding an author illustrator, I have also found all the information about the cost of martials to start a publishing company . I became interested because I did not have the proper up bring and guidance. I found myself in need of inspiration many times throughout life. As an adult I want to give the younger generation the inspiration , guidance, and values I didn't receive as a child. I want to put something in their mind that will give proper values and hope , to make it though these troubling times. I feel that children's literature will help teach and put todays kids on the right path. Many times I see young people go astray, because there was nothing positive for them to follow .Nothing good in moral values for them to look up to .So I want this company to be that become of light .That ray of hope for young people.
