I've spent a lot of time studying my creative family tree but I really don't have to go far to find creativity in my family. My daughter inspired this year of creative habits project. She is as much of an artist as I am. My son at age 10 is a writer; he writes novels, short stories, poetry, and non-fiction. My husband is also a very talented writer. He writes poems with rhyming and meter in a matter of minutes. He writes short stories and novels and is also working on a non-fiction piece. (Oh and he loves puns. He kills us with puns every single day, like eye rolling, "really?!" kind of puns...)
Anyway, today he released the second book in his Stephenson Spencer series. I get to do the covers for his books and I love it! Book cover design is so fun, the best of two worlds I think. (I've done a few covers over the past couple years and you can see those here.)
The Stephenson Spencer series is a little of all of us. Thad wrote the book so of course it's his baby but we all have a little part in it. That's my son's silhouette on the cover and he just might be the inspiration behind the main character, Stephenson. I don't want to give away too much but you'll find hints of me, our daughter, and even our dog in the two stories. If you're into science, technology, nerds, and the like, then you might check out the Stephenson Spencer series. It certainly is a labor of love for us. I'm so happy to be a part of this creative family and it's really fun when we create stuff together.
[The kindle version is available right now. The paperback version should be available within the next 24 hours. It's hard to be patient–I can't wait to get my hands on the polished copy!]
