Mum’s dizzy evolution into a children’s author
WITH her four children proudly describing her as "very" young at heart, Kim Green has put that youthful exuberance to good use by writing her first children's book.
Kim recently launched her first book, Dizzy Lizzy and the Gigantic Bubblegum Balloon, at the Book Expo America in New York.
Loosely based on herself and her adventures as a child, the first sentence in the book sums up Dizzy Lizzy.
It describes Lizzy as a very determined little girl, who can be mischievous.
The books tells the tale of a little girl and a bubblegum balloon that takes her off on a journey up and away into the great beyond, before returning her home safely to her family.
Kim said seeing her book published for the first time and her name on the cover was surreal.
"My youngest daughter Hani and I started squealing and jumping around like I had won the lotto because writing a children's book has been something I have
wanted to do for most of my life," she said.
Kim is already working on her second Dizzy Lizzy adventure and hopes to turn it into a series.
"I am hoping young girls will be drawn to Lizzie's strong, determined, adventurous and a little mischievous character and have fun with it," she said.
The next step in Kim's story
telling journey is to launch her book on the Sunshine Coast with story readings and book signings.
