Sherry Jags began writing her first book, “The Adventures of Jumperoo Joey” in 2015. The inspiration for her book came from her children and grandchildren. She incorporated story ideas from her own life experiences with her children. She currently is completing her second book, Jumperoo Joey The Adventure Continues. The expected release date is Spring of 2018. Jumperoo Joey and friends can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and www.jumperoojoey.com
Who is your favorite author?
My favorite author is James Patterson. I have read most of his books with the exception of the Women's Murder Club series. I love the suspense and the twist and turns in his stories. Private Series is without a doubt my favorite!
What is your writing process?
I do so many different things. Before i finished my book, ideas would constantly pop in my head at the worst possible moment. So that I would not forget them, I would send myself text messages with the information. I kept all of my first writings on my computer. I have handwritten notes on everything from envelopes to stickies that I used. It's funny because you write a book and think it is done, then read it and change it and read it and change it. At times it feels like a Merry-Go-Round that will not stop. Eventually it does stop. This journey has ended. Off to the next Adventure!
Joey the Kangaroo has a wonderful imagination. Children will love the interaction between Joey and his friends. Join Joey, Kenny Koala, Dee Dee Dingo, and Wendy Wombat on their first adventure! This beginning reader with it's colorful pictures will delight any child and demonstrate caring, sharing, and friendship with other children.
