I’m on mission to make writing stories fun for kids!
My name is Marty and I’m the Great Wizard of Imagine Forest. I spend most my days taking care of the mystical creatures that live within Imagine Forest, writing stories for kids and thinking of ways to make story writing fun and exciting for children. You can follow my adventures on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
I have two passions in life, one is to keep Imagine Forest alive and the second is most important, which is to improve the reading and writing skills of children. Why are such skills important you ask? Well…back when I was a little child, I faced many challenges in life from bullying to not having enough money to fit in at school. It was a dark part of my life which only reading helped me overcome! Reading allowed me to find an escape from these daily challenges and helped me see that everyone has bad times, but these soon pass through determination, belief and hope that things can change. Just like some of my favorite storybook characters, such as Matilda who also faced dark times and came out stronger than ever!
Now that I’m all grown up, I strongly believe the time I spent reading all paid off as it allowed me to face my fears, increased my confidence, improved my creativity and most importantly prepared me for the real world! This is my motivation for opening Imagine Forest, an online, interactive story-telling community for all the young writers, dreamers and underdogs who have what it takes to be successful!
