1. Mark Cheverton: Author of "Facing the Beast Within" Discusses Writing for Kids with Anxiety Mark Cheverton 1:01:34

In this podcast episode, Julie interviews Mark Cheverton, a former teacher and author of 27 action-adventure novels for kids. Mark discusses his latest book, “Facing the Beast Within,” which addresses anxiety in children. He shares his personal connection to the topic, revealing that he was an anxious child himself. His son's experience inspired Mark's transition from teaching to writing with cyberbullying, leading him to self-publish a book set in the Minecraft universe. His success came after multiple rejections and self-publishing efforts, eventually leading to traditional publishing deals. Mark emphasizes the importance of taking risks and the therapeutic power of writing, both for himself and as a tool to help children cope with their struggles.

Mark's journey is not just about crafting thrilling tales; it's about touching lives. His latest masterpiece, “Facing the Beast Within,” is a beacon of hope for kids grappling with anxiety. It's a topic close to my heart, and I believe it's a must-read for our little ones.

Here's a sneak peek into the treasures we unearthed during our talk:

🌟 From Classroom to Bestseller Lists: Mark's transition from teaching math and physics to becoming a celebrated children's author is nothing short of inspiring. His books aren't just stories; they're lessons in courage and Resilience.

🌟 The Invisible Kid: Mark shared his own childhood battles with anxiety, reminding us that the bravest stories often come from our vulnerabilities. His experiences breathe life into his characters, making them relatable and real.
