Victoria Randallabout this book: Get on Board Little Children offers its readers a glimpse into a possible dystopian future, in which having a baby without a license is a felony. I was inspired to write this by many comments on the news; I noticed that whenever a child was hurt or abandoned, many commentators would write: they should have to get a license to have a baby!
This seems like a reasonable idea at first glance, but in considering what this might mean in reality, it took me to a dark future. If the government got involved and required payment for a license, it might be out of reach for many. And what of the children born despite the lack of a license?
So I set out to explore this topic in three books. The first is about an unborn child whose mother can't afford the license but refuses to comply with the state's demands. The second is about a young child confiscated by the state, and the third is about that child grown to adolescence, and her struggle with the corrupt forces that seek to use the unlicensed children for profit.
They are fiction, but they are all possibilities.
My son Brandon Graham did the covers; he's a way cool graphic artist, author of King City, who's been nominated twice for the Eisner awards.
My hope is that Get on Board Little Children will encourage my readers to cherish the children in their lives and regard all life as worthy of protection.
