Erika Deery was born and raised in Mexico and has called Australia home for over a decade. She has always enjoyed creating characters and giving them a personality. In 2014, she wrote ‘Millie va al espacio/Millie goes to space’ while travelling solo from Australia to Mexico with her then 6-month-old daughter. It helped a great deal to pass the time on the flight to imagine the adventures she might have gotten up to on a long-haul flight. This was a bilingual book that could be read in English and Spanish. From there, the Millie Books series was born.
Erika not only wants kids to hear or read stories in English and Spanish. She also wants to give them the opportunity to see themselves as someone who can have exciting adventures and be whatever they want to be. Through her books, Erika wants to foster children’s sense of curiosity, exploration and imagination.
My Millie Books series (4 books) is available on Amazon and other online stores. I also have a podcast called the Bilingual Book Club where I interview authors that write bilingual children’s books. You can listen on Spotify and other podcast apps.
