Burlington Mom Pens and Publishes Children's Book

A Burlington resident and mother of two is in the process of publishing her first book. The book is called Seacoo and is for children ages 4 to 10 year olds and was written by Gemmesa Mercado under the pen name G. Johnson. 

As many good children’s books do, the story has a couple of lessons she hopes her young readers will take away after reading or listening to it. 

BNEWS Director Rich Hosford met with Gemmesa at the Burlington Public Library to discuss the new book and the unique way she went about getting it published. He has this interview.
