After being questioned about why she decided to write a second book, Rhea responded simply, “I wanted to have more than one book.” This, combined with the urgings of her 5th grade classmates who inquired whether she had considered writing a second book, spurred the budding authoress to put her literary artistry to work once more.
The Runaway Avocado is an interesting children’s storey about an evasive avocado who was on the run because he did not want to be reduced to the consistency of guacamole.
In her second book, Rhea describes how the idea for it struck her while she was eating her breakfast one morning.
When Rhea ate an avocado sandwich for breakfast, she had the idea to write an avocado book, which she later did. “I had ideas that came to me so quickly that I drafted them and worked on them throughout the summer. After receiving encouraging comments from my parents, I chose to stick with the runaway motif.”
Due to the fact that portions of this storey are written in Spanish, Rhea is also demonstrating some of her bi-lingual abilities.
According to her, she chose to include Spanish in her storey because she wanted the avocado to be from Mexico and because the majority of Mexicans are fluent in Spanish.
Rhea has included a colouring book with scenes from her two storybooks in order to spark the curiosity of her young readers and capture their inventive imaginations.
The 5th-grade Montessori student hopes that via her writing, she may encourage others to use their talents to achieve their goals as well.
She went on to say that while participating in both initiatives gave her with enjoyment and excitement, it also presented her with opportunities for learning.
According to Rhea, “I’ve learnt that I need to go over my work and double-check for punctuation and grammatical issues.” “I also learned to pay attention to individuals who have writing experience because doing so will help me become a better writer,” says the author.
As an author with two novels under her belt, Rhea is well on her way to earning a position in the pantheon of authors from the United States Virgin Islands.
