Hello My Happy People,

Today I share my chat with Romanian born children’s book author Andreea Rus. Andreea had a clear career path in mind when she set of for college. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and followed that up with a Masters in Advertising. Both potentially financially lucrative fields. 

After graduation, Andreea traveled the world on work and travel visas. She moved around to different states in the United States and ventured for a time back across the pond to the United Kingdom. It wasn’t until 2011 that Andreea and her husband made their final move to Montreal, Canada where they currently reside. Once settled, Andreea went back to school to earn a diploma in Human Resources and made the move to software quality analyst. 

The idea of writing children’s books wouldn’t enter her mind until later when an incident with her 5-year-old son inspired her to create her line of entertaining and imaginative children’s activity and picture storybooks. Don't wait, go listen now to hear Andreea's amazing story from the author herself.

You can also find more on Andreea and all our authors from June and July in the current issue of Book Banter Magazine (link Below)
