Behind The Scenes
The Making of Luna and the Astronaut of the Mind
Writing this book was a family affair. It took 3 years, on and off, to complete. Eventually, a pandemic and national lockdown pushed us over the finish line. We decided to write a story to help children deal with the depression and anxiety related to the pandemic. This culminated in an ebook series called the Super 3. This is the origin of our name. The wonderful response we received from these free ebooks provided the inspiration – and motivation – that we needed to complete Luna and the Astronaut of the Mind.
For many weeks, we spent our evenings and weekends dedicated to writing and crafting our story. Our furry companion, Jack, was with us throughout the process providing cuddles and warmth. It was an incredibly cathartic process. Out of a very difficult time, we were fortunate enough to be able to tell this positive story. We hope that this book brings you some joy, just as it has given us.
Ask Me First
Ask Me First, by Yumna Sadan, is a little book about a very big topic. It's a simple, palatable, rhyming story with an important message about consent and body autonomy. This book is a great way for parents and caregivers to start this important conversation with kids. We hope that this book will be consumed by young minds, and help spread the seeds of respect for one another that our society so greatly needs.
