The Story Behind This Book
Om Baby was inspired by the birth of my son Octavius. After my son was born I quickly realized that my career as a metal smith artist would be put on hold as it required too many hours working in a studio away from home. I wanted to do something that would work well with being a new mom, something that was meaningful, and something my son would be proud of when he grew up. I watched the documentary called "The Secret" and it inspired me to ask the question: "What next?" The very next day I received the answer. I was nursing my son, and I had a vision. Later on that day I drew my vision on paper and from that moment the character Om Baby was born. I was doing some research for my book and realized there were very few books or characters for children that represented the things I believe in. I decided that I would make the books that I wanted my son to read and create a superhero that represented the ideals, morals, and values that I cherish and hold dear. I feel that there is a need for Om Baby everywhere! I believe that we all have special gifts and talents that are meant to be shared with each other. I know that being a mother is my spiritual path and blessing. I feel it is my responsibility, path and purpose to bring Om Baby to the world and that this is my way of bringing change, healing, and hope to children, families and to the world.

"New heroes are needed for our fastly evolving society and finding a unique, compassionate one is rare...Om Baby is that hero that resides in the knowing heart of us humans. He and his world is superbly envisioned and crafted, combining fantasy and basic human values to enthrall and educate young audiences in simple right ways of livelihood. Spiritual lessons are often disguised in children's literature. Here is an example of that: Om Baby is for all ages! It is a book to share, read again and again and again and save for future inspiration and generations."
