Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I don't know if it was the first story but I remember one that had a huge impact on me. I loved to read from the get go and this book was like a fairy tale. It was about an animal with human characteristics and he found a bag of coins. As he walked on his journey he came across other animals who were in trouble or had problems and he gave them some of his coins to help them out. He ran into 3 or 4 creatures who needed help and to each one he gave them one of his precious coins. When he got to his destination he was surprised to learn he still had as many coins as when he had started. That story has affected me my entire life. What I give out isn't lost. I have found great job in helping others, not always with money, sometimes just to listen or to figure out a solution to a problem/
How do you approach cover design?
As this is a book about something we take into our bodies and because I have a concern for health and well being I wanted something in the background that represented health - a leaf. An of course there needed to be an image of something related to the subject - a bottle of pills.
