Barbara Techel is the author of the multi-award winning Frankie, the Walk ‘N Roll Dog book series. When her dachshund, Frankie, suffered a spinal injury, Barbara had her custom-fitted for a wheelchair. Frankie persevered, and Barbara realized the beautiful opportunity she had to share Frankie and give others hope and inspiration to be the best they can be. Along with sharing Frankie’s story with children, Barbara and Frankie routinely volunteer as a therapy dog team at a local hospital, senior assisted facility, and hospice community, spreading joy wherever they go.

Advice on Writing a Children's Book

If you are thinking about writing a children's book someday, or any book for that matter and have questions, check out my interview on Writer's and Authors Blog with Jo Feliciani. Find out my inspiration behind writing Frankie's story also! Please feel free to post a question at my interview on Jo's blog and I'll be happy to answer it for you!
And hey kids, now is the best time to start writing!! Pick a subject you are passionate about and just start writing! If you love writing, think about starting a kids writing group. Put posters up in your school with a time and date you can meet each week in the library.
