Inspiration for Ollie the Octopus

The inspiration for the location of Ollie the Octopus came from my time living in Florida and working on a beach. The characters in these stories live in the Atlantic Ocean. They are all animals that I saw at various times in Florida!

Sunset on Captiva, Florida

The outline of Ollie’s story came to me fairly quickly. I knew I wanted the message to be a simple story about offering help to others! The characters and their names are not based off of anyone I know in my personal life – they are simply characters that I created and love.

As I spent more time with the book, I further developed my characters. I created more background information about them for their future stories.

It was, and still is, a very fun experience!
