Sarah Linx is influenced greatly by her career in early childhood development. “It was always a dream of mine to publish my stories somehow. I’m not sure my genre would have changed if I wasn’t working or studying education, but it definitely made me want to continue writing altogether! Some amazing teachable moments there I’ll never forget."
The inspiration from her career in her books is "something I never thought about until my last few semesters of school. We studied literacy and phonics teaching techniques using books and it was the first time I went wow I am doing a good thing my incorporating counting and rhyming in my books. I learned some interesting things that definitely stay in my mind."
29 going on 30, Linx is eternally grateful for artistic pointers given by her artist mother. “I love coloring as much as drawing. I practice through repetition. Sometimes I’ll make cat comics or captions so I get my image style down for the book… I really wanted to see my books out there and learning to draw added so much to my books.”
“My third book is actually the first story I ever wrote in middle school, but I thought publishing it would never happen because I couldn’t draw. Try your best and don’t give up!” Says Linx, who also reveals that cats are a recurring theme within her work due purely to her love of them. “Many children are familiar with cats either by curiosity or having them as pets."
