“Tell me a story, Sissy!”
This was a frequent request I heard from my little brother around bedtime. Of course, I couldn’t refuse.
I’ve always enjoyed creating stories. My first audience was the stuffed animals which lived on my bed, who often became actors as well. When I was eleven, with some encouragement from my family, I began writing down these stories.
By high school graduation, I had compiled a shelf full of notebooks and numerous computer folders, all filled with stories, story ideas, or parts of stories I dreamed of one day writing and publishing. However, life got busy and writing was put on the back burner for while.
After taking some college writing classes, (Beginning Writer’s Workshop with Carmen Marquez, Writeriffic: Creativity Training for Writers with Eva Shaw, and Write Fiction Like a Pro with Steve Alcorn) the writing bug bit once again.
The Lord has blessed me with a creative imagination and the talent to write stories. Although there is still much to learn in the field of writing, my desire is to point others to Christ through my stories. My passion is children’s literature, particularly short chapter books for young children or beginner to middle-grade readers. There is a great void for children’s literature which promotes character-building and presents Godly lessons in a fun, yet teachable way. My prayer is my writing will begin to fill this void.
