Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews Patty / Children's Book Author (@mspattyg | Website) / Sub-City Junction, Hoboken.

"I was watching my fiancé, Patrick, and our dog, Fenway, interact and play and he was very childlike with the dog and I was like, 'You know, I'm gonna come up with a story about the two of you.' And he dared me to, and next thing I knew I had a manuscript in my hand."
"Wow, and when was this?"
"This was last year, this time last year."
"What else were you doing at the time, were you working?"
"I do, I work in television at MLB network, which is Major League Baseball, I do some editing and scheduling so in that time I found a space to just write this book."
"What was it like writing it?"
"It was fun, I got to go into my imagination as deep as I possibly can and just come up with something I thought a child would like, and I would bounce my idea off of my 7 year old niece and she approved so I went with it."
"How'd you make the time to write a children's book while working?"
"Oh wow I would just have a notebook with me at all times, so on my lunch break, if I was stuck in traffic, I'd be writing, any time an idea would come to my mind I'd jot it down or use my notes on my phone, and then I meshed it all together at night before bed, I spent an hour writing before bed."
"Were there any points along the way where you felt like quitting?"
"Oh absolutely, every time I'd finish a chapter I'd say 'Oh my god this isn't any good, these kids aren't gonna like it and I somehow found the strength to keep going because it was a dream of mine so I said, 'It's now or never, if I don't do it now then I'll probably never do it' And I'm so glad I did."
