In Conversation with Two Wonderful KidLit Authors, Danielle Dufayet & Deepa Remesh
Happy Sunday listeners!
We have a very special episode for you today! We are excited to feature two amazing and talented children’s book authors on the podcast to share their passion for children’s literature! We’re so very grateful to these wonderful authors who so generously share their thoughts on craft, the various struggles of getting a book into print, and their words of wisdom.
Our first guest today is Danielle Dufayet, the author of You Are Your Strong and did an interview with Reading with Your Kids Podcast a few months back. Her second book, Fantastic You! has been released on September 3, 2019! It is another self-powering book for children that encourages self-love, self-compassion and self- forgiveness. Essentially, it’s about having a wonderful, healthy relationship with oneself!
Our second guest is Deepa Ramesh and she is joining us to talk about her new series MISS TREE TALES designed for middle-grade readers on sustainability, resourcefulness, and conservation. The books in this educational series are also filled with tidbits of scientific and environmental information which would make them a good pick for teachers and educators working on similar concepts.
Here’s More Information About Danielle Dufayet
Danielle Dufayet, born in Yonkers, New York, now lives in sunny San Jose, California, where she writes children’s books and paints. She also teaches English and Public Speaking (Self-Empowerment) to grades K-12. Danielle read her first picture book (Little Raccoon and the Thing in the Pool) when she was 18 whereupon she was blown away by its simplicity, timelessness and transformative power. That’s when she knew it was her calling. Thirty-five years and a Master’s Degree later, she finally made her dream come true and she’ll have TWO books out in 2019 – one about inner strength and managing big emotions, called You Are Your Strong and the other, Fantastic You!, about self-love/compassion.

Miss Tree Tales books feature a mysterious lady, Miss Tree, whose goal is to protect all plants. She sends kids on missions to different destinations around the world to learn about plants in their natural habitats. So far, I have published two books: Mighty Coconuts and Incredible Cacao. To make it an interesting read for kids, I have blended facts with fiction that includes puzzles, fun games, activities, and food. The books are also scattered with seeds for thought that steer toward sustainable living, conservation, and protection of natural resources.
