“I am 12 years old and an aspiring author. This podcast has helped so much. I am currently writing my own book and having a grand time. I want to thank D.K. Drake for putting her time and effort into this podcast. I love the Wingfeather Saga with my whole heart. And, yes, I will dream of dragons tonight. (Probably Sea Dragons)”
Ordinary people sneeze, accept a kind “bless you,” and move on.
A writer sneezes, has a crazy “what if?” thought, then turns the answer to that question into a book.
That’s exactly what happened to today’s guest. I don’t want to spoil the fun of her book’s origin story, but I do encourage you to listen in to hear it directly from Sheryl Bass, author of Baby Dragon’s Big Sneeze.
In this interview, we talk about her amazing children’s picture book, the struggles of the traditional publishing route and the artistic freedom that comes from self-publishing.
Sheryl also shares some fantastic tips, encouragement and advice for young authors.
That’s enough from me. Let me introduce you to Sheryl.

D.K. Drake doesn't exist.
I made her up. Just like I make up the characters in my books. In other words, D.K. Drake is my pen name.
Why did I choose to write under this pen name?
What do the "D" and "K" stand for?
What is my true identity?
I answer all those questions and more to those who want to be email buddies or who listen to the podcast.
I struggled to understand my God-given strength of storytelling when I was a kid despite my wild imagination and creative soul. It wasn’t until I was a senior in college mere months away from graduation that I realized my deep desire to be an author. Then it took another decade or so of struggle to figure out how to bring that dream to life.
Now I want to help you skip the unnecessary struggles I went through and discover that your imagination is a gift God wants to use now, not decades from now. That’s why I will challenge you to think like an author and put creative writing strategies into action as we build stories together one sentence at a time.
