Writing for children and teens was my goal even as a child. I loved to read and wanted to create stories like my favorite authors. Jo, in little women, fascinated me with her writing.
When I attended teacher’s college, the Children’s Literature class was my favorite. My professor read some of my stories and encouraged me to continue writing and learning. How excited I was to share with her, several years later, the news that my first children’s story had been published in a magazine.
Writing and sharing with children has become one of the pleasures in my life. Teaching writing workshops and encouraging youngsters increases this enjoyment.
