Babysitter Beware Book Drawing!

Mom's Choice Awards posted an interview with me on December 10, 2012. Imagine my surprise when I saw the twitt go out when I was at the Mesquite Festival of Books. I remembered them sending me a few questions to answer some months back but never heard a peep after.

The interview shares about my inspiration, writing my award-winning book (which has won not only the Silver Mom's Choice Seal but also the 2011 Silver Quill here in Utah) and a bit about me in general. Yes, there are a few typos, not sure if that was me typing replies to questions at 2am in the morning or what...but the overall interview is done well.

Here is little sample:

VS Grenier (or Virginia, as we like to call her) is not just a children’s book author – she’s also founder and owner of Stories For Children Publishing, LLC; chief editor for Halo Publishing, Int; host of several blog talk radio shows – including The World of Ink Network: Stories for Children and The Writing Mama; and more! She is also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the League of Utah Writers.

Whew!! Virginia lives in southern Utah with her husband and three children.

Please welcome Virginia to the Spotlight!

But if you want to ready the Q&A, you'll have to visit the interview spotlight at http://honoreeblog.momschoiceawards.com/babysitter-beware-v-s-grenier-picture-book-a-real-life-story/

Please leave a comment and if you leave a comment here about something you learned about me, I'll enter you into a contest to win a FREE Autographed Signed Copy of "Babysitting SugarPaw"!

The drawing will be on January 1, 2013 so good luck.


  1. That's really cool that your book began as a writing assignment. That's how The Wiggles got started too. They were all going to college for early childhood development and writing a song for kids was one of their assignments. It just took off from there. :) The book sounds great, Virginia!

  2. Huge congrats, Virginia. Sugar Paw deserves it - awesome!!

  3. I liked the work you did with the elementary school children. I think I would have also been honored to be a judge. And having a bunch of kids coloring pages from your own book, I would have been ecstatic!

  4. Since all three of you were the only ones to respond to the giveaway, I've decided to give you all a copy of my book. Please email me at virginiasgrenier AT gmail DOT com with your mailing address and I'll be happy to get the book out to you.
