My Daughter Wrote and Illustrated a Book!

Last year during the pandemic my daughter Abby decided that she wanted to write and illustrate a book. So I helped her get started with an idea she had. I helped her develop her idea into a short little story about a little girl that is lost and scared.

Helping a 10 year old write a story isn’t as easy as it seems. Sentence and story structure are not really at the top of their list of things to remember when writing. So we just took it one step at a time. I figured, no matter what, she is doing something creative and I am proud she is taking this step to get started.

It only took a few days to write the story. We made sure we went through a first and second draft and finally we had our final draft… that is until I lost it. I put the story somewhere… I just had no idea where, and as time marched on it was forgotten about and pushed aside to make way for the many other projects we always seem to get involved with.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago where my amazing wife FOUND the story! My daughter was not nearly as excited as I was. She must have already moved on from the story as she really struggled pushing herself to get the story illustrated. At first she just didn’t even want to start, but then I explained the process and that she would be coloring her drawings on the computer, she started to get a little more excited.

With a little help, Abby was able to knock out her illustrations and also get them colored over a relaxing weekend. With the review process finally finished up we are now happy to say that Abby’s very first book, The Lost Girl, is now available for purchase in digital as well as print!

Children’s Books – Squat The Robot?

Robot Story 00 Cover

Back in January of 2013, I was informed that the book “Squat The Robot?” was available in Amazon’s Kindle store and would be made available a few days later for a paperback copy. The story is an unique one which finds Squat the robot getting into a crazy and weird adventure. When I was hired on to illustrate this story I was impressed with how it turned out given how strangely unique the story is.

Amazon’s Description:

Squat was cleaning Glistening Glow when hair began to show. She had no idea why until remembering that Creepy Cupid guy. It seems she was under his curse and to make things worse, he had captured her love, making him and his band sing like a dove.

Follow Squat as she begins her quest to put everything back to normal and stop that Creepy Cupid pest. But will it come due? That can be found out by you. Just add this book to your mat from none other than Pat Hatt.

Don’t Forget Your Password! My First Children’s Book

I have illustrated so many children’s books for so many authors over the years. I have illustrated for authors all over the world! You can find those books on Amazon and elsewhere, but in all of that time I have never written and illustrated my own story.

Time are changing!

I have always wanted to write and draw my own story. I just never felt I had the time. It was always after I get “this or that” done. But it just had not materialized. That changed a few weeks ago when I decided that I was going to make the time to do my own story. I started something, sat on it for a little bit, came back to it, and then over the last few days I illustrated it and put it together for purchase on Amazon.

Children’s Books – My Riddle Me Valentine

My Riddle Me Valentine

Working on this Valentine’s Day book had me very busy back in 2013. I spent a good portion of my free time working on this book to get it ready for Amazon’s marketplace before the big day; My Riddle Me Valentine by Charlene Christie. You may remember Charlene, she and I had worked on I Think I was Bit By a Mosquito previously. Which is also a great book for children.

Anyways, Charlene contacted me and asked if I was up for a challenge to get her book done in a little over a week back in January 2013. I checked out her story and I felt that it would be a great match for my style. So I agreed and in what seems like record time the book is now available for Kindle. The story is very cute and great for any young reader.

Amazon’s Description:
