Show biz bug bites; book is born

15 minutes

•  A quiet Charlotte family is thrust into Hollywood

•  “Writing for me was something that I didn’t share with anybody”

(Total Recorded Time is 18:21)

When it comes to the alure of show business, the same bug that bit stars like Ronald Reagan, Hilary Swank and Leonard DiCaprio bit a family living quietly in sedate Charlotte, North Carolina.

And while the DeBoer family’s star is still rising, it has spun off its first book, “Until Tomorrow, Little People.”

Family patriarch Matt DeBoer wrote the book based on a blog he wrote during the family’s first beachhead in Hollywood, holed up in a 2-bedroom apartment for three months, to give their kids a chance to break into stardom.

Son Chandler is in a Warner Bros. movie called, "8-Bit Christmas" starring Neal Patrick Harris and daughter Olivia played Young Love in the Netflix movie “You.”

Matt DeBoer talks about the unusual series of events that launched the children’s careers and formed his book in this Bizgnus Podcast.

“Writing for me was something that I didn’t share with anybody because I was afraid that it would be rejected,” Mr. DeBoer says. “I was afraid it would be rejected.”

Then he realized that his hesitation was at odds with the “go for it” approach he was encouraging for his son and daughter.

Mr. DeBoer worked with an editor at his publisher for months to refine the text before it was published.
