Many students jumped at the opportunity to express their hopes and dreams and bravely tell in their own words how they plan on making a difference in this world.

We hope you enjoy learning about some of our authors: Gary Martin Hays, Adam Weart, and Mary Ellen Fulkus.


Before we get to the questions, we would like to thank Carole Townsend, a friend and author we met through mutual friends and also someone who has frequented one of our favorite restaurants (www.garysbistro.com), who tagged one of our books/authors for this. Carole Townsend is a columnist for the Gwinnett Daily Post, the second largest newspaper in Georgia and a freelance writer published in Ladies’ Home Journal, Los Angeles Times, Christian Science Monitor and other respected publications.

Child Safety Book Cover Final 640x1024 The Next Big Thing Blog Hop1: What is the working title of your book(s)?

Our most recent book, “The Authority On Child Safety,” was released in December 2012. In the book, our authors share extremely insightful ways to talk to your kids about child safety without scaring them.

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?

One of our authors (Gary Martin Hays) is the founder of a non-profit called Keep Georgia Safe whose aim is to provides safety education and crime prevention training. This book was the brainchild of many years of working with children and parents and figuring out the best ways to communicate to children about a wide range of safety topics.

3: What genre does your book come under?

Personal Safety.

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

This book is non-fiction and focuses on strategy so there are no great options for actors to choose for this book. The best characters for this book are families and children right there in their own homes!

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

THE blueprint for starting the conversation with your children about child safety and empowerment.

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?

This book is published through We Published That which is a publishing company whose goal it is to make their authors the Authority on their areas of expertise.

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

This book has been in the works for years, but literally took about 3 months to bring it all together and get it published.

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

The category of Personal Safety is a little lacking, if you can believe that, but we believe there are some other great resources that can be found here:


9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Many children have been lost to horrific situations. There is no way to say for sure that any of these children could have been saved but that is no reason not to empower your children to be ready for the worst. The goal and inspiration for this book is the idea that we have to give our kids the best chance to protect themselves, because we can;t be around 24/7 (even if we want to be).
