Unable to pen lyrics that are not "too mushy" for her rock n' roll style, Bon instead wrote a book, with the 9 -year old as the title character.
"I wrote it in two hours", she said. "I told him if he went to bed now, I would have the book done in the morning. I write music the same way".
"Mitchie's Amazing Adventures: The Trip to Saturn" is about a how a young boy's terrible day takes a more positive turn upon discovering "Zing" under his bed. Together they embark on a journey that teaches Mitchie about Saturn, self-esteem and friendship.
Initially self-published through AuthorHouse, Scholastic has expressed interest in having Bon write four more Mitchie's Amazing Adventure books to be offered through their Weekly Reader program. The next book will follow Mitchie as he visits the remaining planets on his way to say good-bye to Pluto, which is no longer considered a planet. Now Bon is ready to take her characters on a new adventure in the subsequent books, which again will be illustrated by her friend and neighbor, Jo-Ann Codovius. Also a mainstay in any upcoming stories is Zing, designed by Bon's oldest daughter, Cas, who died last January at the age of 23 of an injury sustained in a car accident. Bon is now raising her grand-daughter JonnaMonet age 3 in addition to her son Mitch, who is Autistic and her daughter Johanna, age 13 with Down Syndrome. Kimberly Bon continues to live in Trumbull Ct with her children and husband.
Typical sets are 1 hour long. Depending on the venue - enough originals for 2 hours of music. Covers can be added i.e. Joplin, Etheridge, Journey, Pretenders, etc.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
