Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Jamie Skeie I was writing down ideas for book titles on a piece of paper. When I wrote down, The Purple Purse Merman, it was a joke at first. It just sounded funny. I crossed off Merman and wrote “Mermaid JK” as a note to myself…but kept laughing about the idea of a purple merman with a purple purse. My oldest son is almost a teenager, so I thought it would be a funny joke to play on him. So, I dedicated the book to him…to “troll” him like as we like to call it. At first I hope he’s like, “Dad, what in the….” Then, I hope he loves the book, hugs it, holds it, and sees the real meaning behind it. Often times, people judge books, and people “based off the cover.” The Purple Purse Merman is about accepting people…even if they are purple.
