About the author

I like seeing people who are happy. More importantly, if I can tell a story that makes people happy, I am truly blessed.

As crazy as it may seem, that statement right there is why I embarked on this adventure to begin with. If I am able to raise the funds to print a high quality children's book and see it bring a little bit of joy to kids and their loved ones, I will mark this down as a massive success.

So, if you like what you see and agree with my philosophy, I would love and hugely appreciate your support. Thanks!

About the illustrator

L.A. Harper is a ridiculously talented artist that met N.D. Byma quite by chance after being told by numerous people that she needed to find an avenue to share her talent with the world.

With patience and imagination she was able to take characters, a story and some scribbles on a page and work side by side with N.D. Byma to bring a book to life that had, until now, only existed in the mind of the author.

The inspiration behind King Boogie

King Boogie is written from both the perspective of the parents and the child at the same time. While the child views themselves as far bigger and grown up than they are, like the Kings and Queens of the castle, often times the parents view themselves as the Royal Caretakers that must endure constant surprises and adventures during their day.

I hope the adventures in this book strike a chord for all of the Royal Caretakers out there like "N" and "M" while bringing a smile to the Kings and Queens who read it as well.

Risks and challenges

Much like everything in life, this project will come with numerous potential hangups and issues which can range from issues with illustration and editing, printing issues, order processing and many more which I haven't even spoken of yet.

Though there will most likely be hiccups in the process, I have researched and planned this out in great detail and look forward to overcoming whatever issues arise in order to provide my supporters with a high quality book!
