Welcome to day 1 of the tour for Nicole Weaver
Meet Author Nicole Weaver- I am happy to share with you this information regarding a fine author who writes for children. Check this out.
I decided to write for children because I see a tremendous need for good quality books that portray children of color in a positive light. Additionally, I want to write books that can expose all children to a foreign language at an early age.
I lived near the beach in Haiti. There was a nesting site for sea turtles near my home; consequently sea turtles came ashore all the time to lay their eggs. My father frequently ordered the maid to make stew out of the turtles. I remember vividly how that devastated me. One day I came across a sea turtle while collecting sea shells, I wanted so badly to return the turtle back to the ocean, but much to my dismay I was not strong enough. My father and his brothers carried the sea turtle to the kitchen and had the maid make stew out of it. That memory propelled me to write a story about what happened on the beach so many years ago.
