 Book interviewer Collette Caprarac gives us a window into the birth of this book:

CC:  Joan Critz Limbrick's latest work, Narcissus Water, is a sweet story about the love between a grandmother rabbit and her family and the lovely insights new friendships can bring.  A story for children as well asadults, this gentle book deals with the mystery of heaven.  What inspired you to write your newest children's book, Narcissus Water - A Gift from Grandmother Rabbit and the Golden Fish?

Joan:  A friend's mother whose name was Narcissa died and her children were very sad.  Narcissa was very close to her grandchildren and every year they would go to the beach and vacation together.  The story just plunked down in my head, as most of the stories I write do.  My friend collected rabbits as a hobby so the characters had to be bunnies.  I always joke that I am visited by a Muse who just tells me the stories because they come into my imagination so complete.

CC:  Why is this story special to you?

Joan: I have long felt that loved ones who have died can visit us in our dreams and in our imaginations to help guide us and inspire us.  I have, myself, had many experiences where my very own grandmother seemed to come to me out of the blue and give me ideas or advice. Friends I have lost have also seemed to tune in every now and then.  When this story appeared, I figured it must be appropriate for me to publish it because I think higher inspiration has a plan with our well-being in mind.

CC:  Were you worried about writing for children about such a sensitive subject?

Joan:  Most of my book buyers are grandmothers, and yes, I wondered if they would be skiddish about a book where the grandmother dies.  It doesn't seem to be a problem though, as most response has been relief that there is a sweet story that gives an opening for children to ask questions and talk about a mysterious subject that really does interest them.  None of us know for sure what happens after death, but we sure have questions - expecially children.  This book helps to deal with the subject through a fictional story that presents just the simple idea that loved ones can inspire us in our dreams and in our imaginations after they have gone to "Heaven".
