Selfies In The Wild Author

selfies in the wildMy friend, C.L. Murphy, is an advocate for helping kids read and a Mom’s Choice Award winning author.  She writes fun, colorful books for kids making them want to read.  Her books from The Adventures Of Lovable Lobo series are sure to put a smile on their face.

I had the privilege of interviewing her.

Me: What inspired you to write The Adventures Of Lovable Lobo series?

C.L. Murphy: The main character in the series, Lobo the wolf pup, was inspired by the wolf that I raised for over 14 years. He thought he was a dog and I treated him as such, but his strong will and wolfy tendencies, made raising him a challenge. Incidentally, I did take him to obedience school when he was about 6 months of age and I have a diploma with his name on it to prove it. I think most of the other students’ owners were intimated by his presence until he started playing with a fellow pupil, Olivia.

Meet Lovable Lobo, the main character of The Adventures of Lovable Lobo series. It is so cool that C.L. Murphy raised a wild wolf for 14 years inspiring her to create this character.

Olivia was an English Bulldog. Those two wouldn’t obey when placed next to each another. We’ve all had one of those kinds of friends that led us astray and distracted us at school. Lobo had Olivia. That’s some picture book fodder, I tell you! Even the image of their offspring could be hilarious. Then, there was the time I took him to a groomer. The one and only time, I might add. He refused to get into the bathtub and instigated howling sessions with the other four legged clients. He loved company and reveled in attention.

Me: What do you do for fun?

C.L. Murphy:  How I spend some of my free time…

I volunteer at my local children’s library. I have the privilege of dressing up the bulletin boards and creating interest for the youngest of patrons. The children and librarians inspire me. There isn’t a day spent there that I don’t come home with new ideas. My library offers wonderful programs for kids of all ages and all for FREE.

C.L. Murphy’s amazing volunteer work at the library.

The Summer Reading Program is such a great way to stop the Summer Slide with incentives and innovative methods to engage youngsters. I’d like to encourage parents and kids to check out what their local library is up to year round and behold the magic of the library! Let your imagination run WILD. READ.
