About the Author
“I had to lose my sight to see my vision”
Argyro Graphy lived through it all: bullying, harassment and abuse, but recently turned a life-changing trauma into a children’s book series that inspires kids everywhere to never give up.
“As Bentley was brought to life to bring comfort to children, more than ever, he brings that same comfort to me. You see… both Bentley and I are blind in one eye.”
Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
The Adventures of Bentley Hippo: Inspiring Children Series is about a bubbly hippo out to be a comfort to children that are facing challenges and struggles. He is on a mission to inspire children to do better, be kinder, accept and respect each other, regardless of size, color, shape, gender or religion: and to lend a hand to those that face additional disabilities and handicaps. I created Bentley and as I am blind in one eye, so is Bentley.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
Bentley Hippo continues to grow in popularity around the globe as he is a very easy character to fall in love with. From the reviews, he has made a difference and brought comfort to children, and that is validation that the message I am trying to spread is actually being heard.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors to choose from, which book and author would you suggest to be your favourite and why?
I always loved children’s books – anything with loads of bright colors, and though I never grew up with a favorite author, I recently came across a novel, Thunder the Elephant by Erik Daniel Shein. The author is by far my favorite now and since reading Thunder I have added the entire series to my collection. His style of creative writing draws you into the story and even though it is not a fully illustrated book, the details paint a clear picture in your mind. His style has you eager to find out what happens next and wanting more.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new to the writing work, or who was trying to enhance their craft or business?
The only advice that I would offer to anyone deciding to write is to be clear about why you want to write, and then be passionate about writing your story, no matter what genre.
Qn 5: Where can our readers find out more about you, do you have a website, or a way to be contacted?
