How We Came Up With Ava and His Super Hero
Nathan has always regarded first responders as his Super Heroes. When we first went to visit our publisher, Tellwell Talent in Victoria BC, this was quite evident to them. They recommended that we do a full series of books about first responders.
In the summer of 2017, we went to the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver. This was the first time that Nathan saw the RCMP Musical Ride. The following spring, while on a family vacation in New York, Nathan saw another police horse in Central Park. That is where he got the idea of writing a book about a police horse.
Later that summer, we went to the President’s Choice SuperDogs show at the PNE where Nathan was inspired to incorporate an agility trained dog into the story.
In the summer of 2019, we went on a book tour of the interior of BC. When in Prince George, we had an amazing visit with Cariboo - Prince George Member of Parliament, Todd Doherty. In our meeting, he told us that 2020 is the RCMP 100th anniversary. That's when we decided to write our police book about the RCMP Musical Ride, Ava and Her Super Hero, for 2020.
