Bakersfield Author Releases Children's Book

Bakersfield mom and author, Mendy McLaughlin, recently released her children’s book, “Katie the Drama Queen.”  Inspired by her daughter Katie, Mendy enjoys taking her to book signings and readings dressed up like the “drama queen” character of her book.    

In the story, Katie is a drama queen who overdramatizes everything from breakfast to bedtime. Her sister steals her dolls and plays with them the wrong way. Her brother asks her to play with him outside, but he’s only trying to get her new shoes dirty. As her family members tell her she’s a drama queen, she begins to wonder just exactly what that means.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or  This is also an eLIVE title, meaning each book contains a code redeemable for a free audio book version from eLIVE – Listen, Imagine, View, and Experience!

McLaughlin lives in Bakersfield, California, with her husband and three children. She spends most of her days with her family trying to have as much family time with them as possible.
