DK soon discovered it wasn't going to be an easy life for her children. After all, if she didn't like waking up in a different bed every few days how would her children feel? …And just where were those black suede pumps anyway? Eventually she and her ex-husband decided that it was getting to be too much and that it was going to have to be the kids that made the transition. During this entire time, DK was in search of a book that might help her kids understand this new way of life.
As the years went on, DK noticed that whenever the kids came back from their Dad's, and another set of routines and rules, that they seemed to have a bit of trouble adjusting. They were always grouchy or struggling on those days. Again, DK went in search of a book to help. She was again disappointed when the books she found really focused on the fault issue of divorce, but not the coping with the day to day life.
Finally, DK decided to take those writing skills and put them to use. As she enjoyed reading books to her kids she also began to enjoy making up stories, sometimes writing them down. Eventually she determined that she really wanted to make a difference in this world. She thought maybe writing children's books that could help children relate to real-life scenarios or stimulate their curiosity in reading might fill that want.
DK's published her first book, We're Having a Tuesday, in order to fill the void of the missing resource for her own kids' divorced parent situation. Her second book, Santa's (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas is set to be released this holiday season. Go to www.purplesantasuit.com for more information.
