Alvita Mack was kind enough to stop by today and answer a few questions and leave a few thoughts along the way.
Thank you, Alvita!!!
There are many books out there about fireman and firetrucks, especially for younger listeners/readers. What makes yours different?
I know there are a lot of informational texts on fireman and cute stories about the role of a fireman, but I haven’t read a story like this one, where the little boy is encouraged to hold his dreams near and work hard until they become a reality.
It's not easy to come up with a fresh story and stick to writing it. What advice would you give budding writers?
I would tell budding writers to stay true to yourself and your art, don’t give up, and believe in your talent… if you don’t know one else will.
Where does you book take place? Have you ever been there?
My book takes place at home and a Fire Station, and I have been to both places countless times (LOL)
This is a picture book not only about firemen. It also holds some wonderful thoughts and messages.
In one of the illustrations, there is a quote that states, “I can do all things”; I say that because it is true. That quote is actually an excerpt taking from the scripture Philipians 4:13 that says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. This scripture was instilled in me early on and these words are both inspiring and powerful.
If you could put yourself as a character in your book, who would you be?
I really didn’t want to appear too much in this book, but there is a mention about the little boy’s mom and dad encouraging him.
Again, thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to chat with us. Here's wishing you tons of Happy Writing!

Having a son with developmental delays was very challenging for her. However, she used books and original stories to help him overcome the obstacles he faced at an early age. Alvita believes that the imagination is truly a key that unlocks the doors to an endless journey.
