Floree Williams Whyte has published her fourth book, second children’s picture book, and the second from her independent press Moondancer Books, Dance on the Moon.
Whyte, as you know if you’re a regular here, is a Wadadli Pen team member. I will be interviewing her about this book for my CREATIVE SPACE series but until then, here’s a recent interview with ABS TV, in which she discusses, of writing, how she fell in to it and fell in love with it; the inspiration for the book, where and how readers can get the book, and her future in writing and publishing.
Antiguan Author Floree Williams Whyte releases 4th book
[St. John’s Antigua —December 7th, 2021] Author and publisher Floree Williams Whyte has released her 4th book – Dance On The Moon, right in time for the Christmas season.
Dance On The Moon, Whyte’s first fully illustrated book is set in Antigua and targeted at children ages 3 – 7. The story book features main character Lula, a 7 year old, who has big, overwhelming emotions which often make her want to stay at home. Lula learns to overcome her strong feelings of anxiety, nervousness and shyness by taking some special advice from her Antiguan grandmother.
Floree was inspired to write this book based on her mantra ‘Never let fear stop you from dancing on the moon’, to help encourage children who already experience anxiety and fear at a young age.
Dance on the Moon is her 2nd book to be published under her own imprint Moondancer Books. Whyte hopes to be able to expand her publishing company to include other children’s book authors in the near future.
Books can be purchased worldwide on Amazon, or locally from The Best of Books and Ten Pages Bookstore. Whyte will also be selling and signing copies at the Antiguan Artisans Christmas Market on December 11th at The Vineyard Restaurant.
Floree Whyte is an Author, Publisher, Marketing & Communications professional, wife, mother and dreamer. In 2017 she founded Moondancer Books a local book publishing company focusing on Antiguan children’s books. Whyte has published four books ranging from children’s books to a young adult novel. She credits her educational background as one of the main reasons she got into book writing and publishing.
