Hi. My name’s Sandman. I’m a cat. I’m also a writer. Recently I started writing a new series of chapter books for kittens. I decided to have it take place in outer space. (Do you like my alien eyes?)
Before I made that decision, though, I spent time brainstorming ideas. First I climbed into my super duper spaceship that my writer buddy set up for me now that she has a new grandbaby. When I’m ready to blast off, I just push the button on the side that vibrates and my spaceship is ready to launch!
