Hidden Easter Eggs In My Book : Part 2

As promised, here is Easter Egg number two! If you haven’t followed the Easter Egg trail, be sure to read the first part of this series.

When the illustrator was drawing the pages where Eartha is rescued by a boat he asked me, “Did you want to put a name on the boat?” I received his email question while I was watching the Discovery Channel show, Deadliest Catch. On that show is a boat called the Cornelia Marie. Without hesitation, I replied back to the illustrator … “Name the boat, Lucinda Marie”.

Lucinda Marie is my wife Cindy’s true given name. From the beginning she had been by biggest supporter in the writing this book. Whenever I got frustrated or disillusioned, she would be right there to offer inspiration and support. Now not only is she the wife of a brilliant children’s book author, but she is forever immortalized as a marinelife rescue boat.

This being Easter egg number two, that can only mean one thing. Our third and final Easter egg will be revealed soon.

Do you think you know what it is?
