MARK KELLY WRITES A KIDS' BOOK
Mark Kelly, former Rep. Gifford's husband, is signed up to write a picture book about a mouse who goes into space called Mousetronaut: A Partially True Story. It will be illustrated by C.F Payne. "While in space the astronauts are busy with their mission when only the smallest member of the crew can save the day," said a statement released this week. Kelly said that writing "Mousetronaut" was "fun" and "not as emotional" as his wife's memoir.
Everyone wants to write a children's book. I guess they imagine it is a fun thing to do. Parts of it is. But if you make it your career it can be stressful and some parts of it are not fun. But I guess if it's a side hobby and you don't go through agonizing rewrites then it could be called "fun."
