What are you working on now?
Our next children’s book is entitled The Stretchy Cheese Pizza. It’s based on an experience that our young grandson, Connor, had when making a pizza with him mom. When she left Connor for a moment, he dumped the entire package of cheese on top of the pizza despite a warning not to do so.

What ensues in our children’s book is the crazy adventure that the cheese takes Connor on when it explodes out of the oven and all over the neighborhood.

The Berghs’ reading recommendation:
I’m really trying to figure out how to best promote our books and have enjoyed Michael Hyatt’s book, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World.
