Storytelling and Childrens Books with Michael Pellico

What is the secret to successful children's books? Today we ask author, film producer, and medical researcher Michael Pellico. He grew up in a busy household where both parents worked non-stop to provide for their 11 children. Pellico, as the oldest sibling, took it upon himself to entertain and enlighten his brothers and sisters with creative, escapist, values-based stories. Without even television to distract the kids, Michael held court regularly. He would continue the tradition of telling fantastic stories built around values of friendship, courage, curiosity, and hope to his niece, Sabrina.

These delightful stories now form the foundation of his children's book publishing company, Moonbow Publishing. He has authored the first five books with no signs of slowing down. Listen in to learn about the best way to write children's books by this medical researcher by day, storyteller always.
