Real Inspirations

Sometimes people ask why we write children’s books.  The short answer is, our grandchildren. It’s difficult to imagine, but only three years ago we didn’t have any grandchildren. Now we have three, Rylie, Abygail and Aubree. We actually completed the first book on the day Rylie was born, back in December 2010. Here is a picture of Rylie today, at his third birthday party, playing with the tool bench we sent to Minnesota. He is a very handsome boy.


Abygail and Aubree are less than two months apart in age. Abygail is six months old and Aubree is five months old. Becky spent the weekend in Minnesota with Tiffany for Rylie’s birthday. Here is Abygail enjoying her first time in the snow. Living in Arizona, she probably won’t see much of this.

This is the reason we write children’s books. We want to leave something behind for our children and their children, and maybe, hopefully, some day our books will catch on and pass the test of time.

We are currently writing a picture book series about Hershey, the mean-spirited cat from the Robby’s Quest series. In the first book, Hershey is a bully who enjoys nothing more than picking on smaller animals. One day, Hershey learns a life-lesson that changes him forever. The first book will be titled “Hershey Learns a Lesson”. The book will not be nearly as lengthy as the Robby’s Quest books but they will have full page illustrations on every other page. We are really looking forward to publishing this book, hopefully in January 2014.

Don and Cathy are the authors and publishers of the Robby’s Quest children’s storybook series. Visit D.C. Rush Books, Lessons for Life at
