Author of There’s Something About a Boy
I want to thank you for being my guest here on Mymcbooks Blog
What is the last book you read? I am currently reading “Crazy Love,” by Francis Chan and loving it. With three young kiddos in the house, finding the time to read (and actually comprehend what is taking place in the book), is hard to do.
What was your favorite children’s book? “The Giving Tree,” by Shel Silverstein
What were your earliest memories of writing? I have always loved writing and enjoyed the creative process behind it. No matter what the topic may be, I think it’s an amazing way to creatively express one’s self.
Were you encouraged to write or was it something that came natural? I think a little of both. 🙂
Are you working on a new book? Always…
What inspired you to write There’s just Something About A Boy? After writing and releasing “Mommy Whispers,” for my daughter last year, I thought it only fair to express my feelings for my two young boys as well.
What is the most difficult part of writing? Revisions.
What do you do when you’re not writing or promoting your books? I am slightly compulsive about event planning and love to orchestrate new events at my church for all to learn from and enjoy.
How do you react to a bad review and have you ever suffered from writer’s block? Yes and yes. Bad reviews and rejection are just part of this whole crazy adventure. If anything, you realize that not everyone is going to love your work. Rather than focus on those negative thoughts, I love to relish the reviews where my work has truly blessed another.
Who are some of your favorite authors you would love to dine with? Jesus.
What author inspires you the most and why? See above. Enough said. 🙂
What discipline do you impose on yourself regarding schedules, goals, etc.? I am a “pantser,” which means I am not a disciplined writer. As much as I would love to be, most of my ideas are spontaneous and I just have to roll with it.
What do you hope that readers will take away from your book? The message of how much they are loved and adored by their mother (and father), forever, for always, and unconditionally.
What advice you would give to new writers? Just keep writing, creating, researching, and learning. Let rejection motivate you to write even more.
Thank you for this interview.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
Books Given in 2012: 380
Books Given in 2013: 330
Books Given in 2014: 257
Books Given in 2015: – 127
