Samantha Vaca has turned her love of writing into a business opportunity at the young age of eight years old. When she was six, Samantha penned a few silly and fun stories and read them to family and friends. The feedback was incredibly positive, and Samantha was encouraged to keep writing. Eventually she and her family decided it was time to go the extra step and publish Samantha’s book.
“Silly Pumpkin Stories” is now available in both print and electronic editions through Amazon and at select Whole Foods locations. The book is a collection of 23 short, whimsical stories featuring pumpkins as the main characters. Some of the stories are just plain goofy, and most have a positive message that speaks to kids.
Family and friends expressed the inspiration Samantha and her book were for other kids, with several wanting to write their own books, focus on their own projects and most of all, believe in themselves. Samantha is so motivated she is now writing what she hopes will become her second book. You can read more about the book and about Samantha at www.sillypumpkins.com.
