Im My Own Mom

This is a book written by a mother, for mothers, and about motherhood or the lack of it. Tony is a boy who is sick and tired of living life by his mothers rules. All he dreams about is a life without rules and a life without mom! His dream finally comes true one day and he gets to live the life he has always wanted. He finally realizes the big mistake he has made and how life really is without his mother.

The Process

This book took over 20 years to make! This book was written by Celia Tice in the early 1990's about her youngest son Marcos Antonio. Celia was only 16 when she gave birth to her oldest son Albert and had to quit school so that she could work and provide for her family. She was determined to finish her education so she went back to get her GED and in the process wrote this book on standard notebook paper with two little boys watching beside. After the book was complete she bound it up using sewing thread. She read the book to her two boys and placed in the desk and never came back to it again. She researched how to publish a book but figured it was impossible given her background and education. She always stressed the importance of education to her children and her eldest son and daughter-in-law Albert & Lindsey both went on to gain their Masters degree from the University of Oklahoma. Albert and Lindsey decided it was time to make their mothers dream come true and re-edited, reformatted, and redesigned IMOM in order to get it published and make Celia Tice the first published author in her entire family.

Words from the Author

THIS IS THE BEST MOTHERS DAY When I was raising my children I wrote a children's book the book is about one of my children. I tried to publish it but never was successful in doing it because of not knowing how. My son and daughter-in-law made my dream possible I am now an author of the book "IM MY OWN MOM" it will be published and we will be having a signing at Barnes & Noble soon. They brought me breakfast and we watched a video on how it was all done they work so hard they went through so much to get this published and it means the world to me, touched my heart words cannot say how much this made my Mother's Day I'm still so shocked they surprised me on Mother's and they have been working on it for a long time. To my babies and grand babies Albert and Lindsey, Myka and Elijah thank you so much from the bottom of my heart I'm still so excited and shocked of it all. What a great Mother's Day thank you God for my wonderful children I am blessed.
