In the seventh grade, my friend told me about Bumbos and we got a good chuckle at the name "bumbo". A few weeks later, I wrote the best book ever, Patrick and the Haunted Bumbo. This book would soon grow to have a whole series with its own universe, but let's go back to the start. 

We were told to write a scary story for writing class, my brain was instantly swarming with ideas. One was to make a Luigi's Mansion story and another one was to make a Slenderman story. The thought to make a book about a haunted bumbo never crossed my mind. After I finished writing the story, it was the day to present them. In Homeroom, I scraped and wrote a new story entitled Patrick and the Haunted Bumbo. 

At the end of the day, it was writing class, which meant we had to read our story out loud to the class. One kid's story was about a witch that got burned for demon worshipping, my friend's was about Jackie Chan and Chuck Norris fighting each other. After everyone went, it was my turn. As I stepped up to the podium, I started laughing uncontrollably due to the absurd nature of the story. I was laughing so bad, I couldn't read it. My friend stepped up and read it for me. 

Everyone had started laughing about how absurd it was and at the end, he shouts, "IT WAS THE BUMBO!!" That's the origin of the first book in The Bumbo-Verse. After that, I wrote many more books and there seem to be no signs of stopping anytime soon.
