Meet Linda Valderrama, Author of Brush Berry
I am so glad to have gotten to know Linda Valderrama a bit better. Welcome to my blog Linda!
1. Could you tell us a little about yourself?
I have over 30 years experience as a dental hygienist. My patients range in age from 3 to 100. A graduate of the Ohio State University, I have practiced in Dayton, Ohio, Cleveland, Ohio, Geneva, Switzerland and San Diego, California. I have always been a strong believer that good oral hygiene leads to good overall health and wellbeing. Our book will help parents to work with their young children to achieve this goal. ”Brush Barry Brush” is a unique tool that helps to instill the simple but very important notion that tooth brushing after eating is essential and fun!
2. Describe your desk/workspace.
I have two work areas. One desk is in my bedroom and a second desk is in the guest bedroom. I use lots of “post its” to organize my thoughts when I am brainstorming. Another funny quirk is that I listen to a Sesame Street song, “Kids Just Love To Brush!” It peps me up and instantly puts me in a good frame of mind. I like to write out first drafts with my lucky pen, before going to the computer.
3. Do you have a favorite quote?
“You can never quit. Winners never quit, and quitters never win”
You must never give up and I live my life by this philosophy …especially when times get tough!
4. What are you currently reading?
When I go into a book store I am immediately drawn to the children’s section to check out my competition!
5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Good things happen when you least expect them.
