Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Tuesday, October 18, 2022, Marie Robert. Marie is the Author of the Children’s Book: Georgia’s Far-Away Family. (Her book is published in both French and English.) Marie is also an Irish Speech and Language Pathologist and more importantly, a Mom.
Marie took us through her creative process and why she felt compelled to write this book. Through personal experiences, it's a subject that is very close to her heart as she grew up as a third culture child and her daughters are now doing so. Marie always lived in different countries than where her far-away family lived. She also loves to write so it comes as no surprise that when she was reading the story to her daughters about a little girl growing up in a different country to her grandparents and other extended family members that her daughters related to “Georgia” in a very personal way.
Marie’s character in the book, Georgia, talks about her emotions around always having to say goodbye and not see them all the time. Then at school she does a project about family and finds out that her classmates think her family is pretty cool which helps her reconcile with the fact that all families are different and hers is wonderful too.
Marie has a few other projects in the works and “Georgia”, although no sequels as of yet, might be intertwined with perhaps one of Marie’s upcoming projects! Just my prediction of course.
