I'll help you take the guesswork out of your children's book journey and you'll walk away with a tangible next step for your book as well as a vision for overall project.
I'm a bestselling, award-winning children's picture book author, and I want to help you.
Plus, as the Co-founder and Executive Director of Risen Motherhood, I see hundreds of the best children's books each year and I evaluate them to decide what to recommend to the hundreds of thousands of moms in the RM community, and what goes back on the shelf. I love books, and I might just love seeing books come to life even more.
I've been writing stories for as long as I can remember. In fact, in first grade, I won my first writing award after I entered my story, "Mackenzie's Dog Goldie" in an AT&T writing contest. I still have the certificate and ribbon. (I'm thinking about putting them up on my office wall.) Since that day, I dreamed of being a children's picture book author, but I never actually thought it would happen. But by God's grace, I got where I am today. Now, I get emails and dm's every week from people just like you who are looking for advice and help at various stages of their author journey, but typically their questions require more than what a quick email or dm can accomplish. So, I'm setting up office hours so you and I can chat face to face about whatever is troubling you.
I've written three children's books: the bestselling, Any Time, Any Place, Any Prayer, which was the winner of the Christianity Today's Children and Youth Book of the Year, and a finalist for the ECPA's Children's Book of the Year, as well as the forthcoming, Like Me: A Story About Disability and Discovering God's Image In Every Person (1.10.23) and one more soon-to-be announced title.
