viki-heagyMotivation Champs Author Interview

A chat with Viki Heagy our author from Izzie The Inchworm’s First Day of School.

Please tell us what inspired you to write this book?

My granddaughters had concerns about starting school. I wanted to reassure them – and all children – with fun lovable characters that teach a lesson.

Who is your biggest influence and why?

My Mother. She taught me kindness, compassion and love by her example with others.

Tell us something we don’t know about you?

When I was younger I rode dirt bikes and I flew a Piper Tomahawk plane.

Can you share with us a positive experience as a result of publishing your book?

I love seeing the excited reactions people have to Izzie and her friends in the story.      izzie-the-inchworm-cover

Since we try to share inspiration at Motivation Champs can you share your favorite inspirational quote?

Well I have two.

1. There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. By Albert Einstein
2. You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – Christopher Robin to Pooh

What was your favorite book as a child?


What is your favorite activity to do with the family?

Now that everyone is grown and on their own, enjoying a meal together has become a very special time for our family.

What do you hope the reader gets from this book?

I hope children realize their actions and words affect others. Also I hope it gives a little boost of confidence to shy children.

Are you working on any other projects?

Yes. Three additional Izzie stories and two faith stories.

Where can we get a hold of you?
