Interview with Rex Baughman whose life events inspired the novel, Ty the Bull

 


Brenda:
Hi Rex. Please tell us a little about you.

Rex: 
Well, I really like to be active unless there is no one I like to play with. Then I will stay inside. I like to stay positive. Some kids will get bored or sad right away but I like to look at the bright side of things.

 Brenda:
That is so good Rex. I love hearing that. A positive outlook is a great thing.

 If you were to write another book what would you write about Rex?

Rex:
I would want to write about a motorcycle cop and a girl in a bikini with a bunch of zaliens and gorons.

Brenda:
What in the world is a zalien and a goron?

 Rex: 

Those are my made up characters. They are zombie aliens. They are kind of like aliens and gluten free maniacs.

Brenda:
Haha... What do you know about gluten free?

 Rex:
I know some people eat brownies without gluten.

Brenda:
I'm learning something new everyday!

What have you been bullied about?

 Rex: 
Being fat even though I know I am not fat. They say that because I am bigger than them. They call me the basic names like idiot. Mostly they just call me fat.

 Brenda:
Oh gosh Rex. I hope you don’t believe what they say.

Rex:
I don’t but they say stuff like that.

Brenda:
What do you want your readers to take away from your book.

 Rex:
I want them to know that when they are bullied they are not alone. They are not the only one’s they have this happen to. Since it is more talked about it is not such a big surprise.

Brenda:
So again, you are saying that they are not alone.

 Rex:
That’s right. 

Brenda:
On that note, what are your parting words?

 Rex: 
A lot of the other kids are being bullied, you can relate to the other kids if you are being bullied too.

Brenda:
Anything else?

 Rex:
STAY COOL
