Author of children's books, Violet M. Findlay currently has two non-fiction books selling on Amazon.com, as well as Barnesandnoble.com, "What Will Baby Be Like? Preparing a sibling for the arrival of a new baby" with a second book having the same title only in an Ethnic version. These books are not just about the baby. They are about the whole family working together during a time of change. Using beautiful full color photos throughout her books will have you saying, "how cute!"
Violet is originally from Paterson, New Jersey and moved to Southern California in 1976, with her husband and their two daughters, ages nine months and two years old.
Having thirty-five years experience working with children from pre-school age to sixth grade, has given her an awareness of children's needs. Along with her husband, Violet is now acting as daycare provider for three of their grandchildren. Keeping up with a two year old, seven year old and 9 year old still has Violet actively using her child development skills.
It is her grandchildren that have given her the inspiration and drive to create her children's books. Ideas for future books include active play involving role playing, such as a doctor, artist, magician, veterinarian, police officer, chef and so forth.
Violet also has interests with Photoshop, gardening, reading mystery books, oil painting, home decorating and a little bit of photography. There is no end to her desire to be creative.
