Edmund Hickey does not see himself as an author but rather as a story teller in the ancient tradition of story tellers of the past who handed down their tales by word of mouth, orally.
The tale of Big Blue comes from a constantly developing bedtime story he would tell his children when they were young. Even though they are adults now, he still let’s them in on what Big Blue, Mr. Wolf, and the rabbits, Shadow and Light are up to. It was his children who convinced Edmund to write down his story. “Every kid needs to hear your tale, Dad.” “This is a unique tale, 20 years in the telling, that has been living in my heart for a generation,” says Edmund. “I don’t really know where this story is coming from, if I’m channeling it or it’s coming from my Muse or what, but it warms my heart to tell it and I never know what Big Blue or Mr. Wolf is going to say until I open my mouth.” Only available on Kindle.
