Authors Not-So-Anonymous Week #19

Welcome everyone to the ninteenth Authors Not-So-Anonymous weekly meeting!! This weekly series is about authors from Twitter and Facebook!  This week, I would like to introduce Jonathon D. Fluck  into Authors Not-So-Anonymous!

Jonathon Fluck is a children's author from New Jersey.  He began writing children's books after he realized how much fun it was telling original stories to his son each night.  "About a year a go my oldest son asked for a bedtime story and each night I came up with a new story but used the same characters.  It was at this point that I realized how much fun it would be to write a children's story."  A children's author inspired by his very own children! So sweet!

" T-Bot and Peabody Explore is a series where the two main characters explore and learn. T-Bot and Peabody are based off my two sons.  T-Bot like my oldest son loves to learn, study facts, and figure the world out.  Peabody is like my youngest son, he just wants to have fun and if he learns along the way; that's nice.  I co-author these stories with my wife and I do the illustrations.  It has been awesome sharing this with her. Even our muses help with brainstorming ideas, it's a family affair!"  Such a fun family project!

His inspiration and support came again from his two sons and the his loving wife.  "The characters, T-Bot and Peabody, are based on my two sons.  T-Bot is based of my oldest son and Peabody is based on my youngest. My two sons started me down the writer's path, but I start new "projects" all the time, it's finishing them that is an amazing feat and had it not been for the encouragement and help of my wife Karen, T-Bot and Peabody would have remained an oral story that never made it outside of our house."

Jonathon's favorite novels include numerous classics such as The Count of Monte Cristo, 1984, Beowulf, and Cyrano De Bergerac.  "I love Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, and Oscar Wilde."
