About Catalina Sofia Dansberger Duque

My world is made up of many ethnicities, races, sexualities, genders, religions, family structures, nationalities, languages, dachshunds, and crazy cats. I write about it as founder of Writeidea8 and contributor to Thrive GlobalHuffington PostMs. Magazine BlogUpWorthyGay Family Trips, and Cool Progeny. I want the books that I read to reflect the joy of this world, so when my wife and I read a bed time story to our daughter we can be assured that the brilliance of our life will be reflected.

I did not want to wait for a publisher to meet my insatiable appetite for diverse books. I am a firm believer that if you find something missing you figure out how to create it. That is how Treetop Suite Publishing came to me. These funds will help to pay independent writers, designers, and illustrators creating diverse imaginative worlds where readers of all ages can get lost in a a story that positively resembles their life and its boundless possibilities.

Each book will be proof of the love that it takes to journey into the impossible and-- succeed. Treetop Suite Publishing is creating books in all genres where, like in reality, diverse people lead, create, invent, venture and dare to imagine  ALL OF THE TIME. We aim to inspire future change makers by helping today's educators and leaders understand the power and scope of diverse books through trainings and educational materials. Look for us as we take our passion for diverse books on the road at the OutWrite LGBT Book Festival in DC this summer. Join us in supporting the next big wave of diverse books.

What You Get:
In addition to our boundless gratitude you will be welcome into a creative community that aims to radically change the quality and scope of books with diverse protagonists and plots that mirror the unique and positive worlds we live in. You will receive an invitation to our monthly newsletter, a free short video that highlights the power of diverse books for you to care and share, invitation to patron only Facebook Live events to include your voice in the diverse books conversation; patron only Q & A session on writing, teaching, and promoting literary diversity; and ongoing spotlights of publishers, writers, and speakers whose work we love and support. We want there to be many roads and outlets for you to find diverse books and resources.

Thank you for your support!

Our goal is to fund the design, illustration, and publishing of our first children's book Adventures with Elliesofia: World Safari. This is the first bilingual,English/Spanish, children's adventure series that represents a multi-racial family with two moms. All of the animals researched for the book are on the endangered list, 1% of  profits from book sales will go to organizations that help keep these animals protected.
