Nine-year-old Anjali got the idea for her book when her father constantly told her and her sister about a dog named Diesel at J&J Fitness in Flagler Beach, where he works out. Diesel belongs to the owners of J&J Fitness and her father took both girls before school on several occasions to visit him. Diesel was Anjali’s inspiration and in less than three weeks, she wrote four short stories about the adventures of Diesel and his family, typing it all herself. She also hand drew the illustrations and took the pictures with her mother’s iPhone.
Anjali moved to Palm Coast from Orlando when she was 9-months-old and in addition to being a student at Imagine School at Town Center, she has attended the Kumon Math & Reading Center since she was three-years-
Anjali has also learned the importance of giving back from her parents. For every book sold at a Flagler County school, she is planning to give 10% back to the school. She will also do a book signing at the Flagler Beach Library on April 12 and will donate 10% of the proceeds to the Flagler Humane Society.
