The Author of The Wishing Flower, Dr. Mosetta shares her teaching and writing philosophy.
First published in the May 2007 edition of The Writers Post Journal, The Wishing Flower, now published as a children's fairy tale picture book by PM Moon Publishers, Limited, tells the story of a desire for a most precious gift.
In addition to her biography, a full interview can be found at thereadingtub.com/displayInterview.asp?id=54.
Dr. Penick Phillips-Cermak tackles writing, women's accomplishments and, book promotion in this revealing interview.
Mosetta states "I write to impart information and affect a child's life. Writing is a natural outgrowth of my commitment to children, to life, and to the search for truth. It is also a way to contribute to posterity. To write is to put into reality the values, beliefs, and knowledge central to your very being. As a writer, I create a world where children can reach out and test the limits of their imagination in safety. As an author I let children take their classroom with them. They carry it home in their backpack, sneak under the covers (flashlight in hand), and read in the dark of night."
The second in the series, The Magic of Laven-Rock, also published by PM Moon Publishers, Limited is due out at the end of August, 2008.
She also let slip an exclusive about her newest manuscript, Return to K'briadron.
"It is nowhere near ready," she confessed.
