Come and join me as I talk with author Sharon Griffin for When I Grow Up on Stories From Unknown Authors http://blogtalkradio.com/storiesfromunknownauthors @ 1pm EST.
The book is a motivational push for little girls to pursue male dominated fields. The male dominated fields are portrayed throughout the book in various ethnicities and in two line rhyming prose. The book celebrates diversity, so that little girls all over can relate because they see someone who looks like them being positively portrayed in a book.
Sharon Griffin self published her first children's book, titled When I Grow Up: A Little Girl's Big Boy Dreams, because of her desire to be an advocate for little girls and women. Having four daughters of her own, Sharon would like to see more opportunities for females and for the coined phrase "male dominated" to be non-existing. Sharon refers to this book as being a trifecta. Sharon graduated with her Bachelors and Master's degrees in Psychology from the University of Houston - Clear Lake in Houston, TX. Having a background has helped Sharon in not only her personal life, but also in her professional life.
