My first year as an MFA in Writing for Children was an absolute treasure. Allow me to reminisce on the beauty of it all!
I’m embarking on a new chapter this fall: Pursuing an MFA in Writing for Children at Simmons University in Boston. Here’s to following passions and always growing!
My debut children’s book series, Entrepreneur Kid, was honored at the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, as a Children’s Nonfiction category finalist with “Sebastian Creates a Sock Company.”
GoDaddy offered my books to 400 kids attending its Take Your Kids To Work Day event across five offices. The kids also heard from the books’ kid entrepreneurs!
My debut picture book was awarded the silver Bill Fisher Award for best initial title from a publisher at the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards.
Why don’t we talk more about love in education? In her iNACOL Symposium 2017 keynote, Diane Tavenner tackles childhood insecurity, with love as a solution.
Visiting fourth graders virtually in Texas, I shared my passion for writing and encouraged students to follow their own passions.
In 30 days, I raised more than $20,000 on crowdfunding site Kickstarter to publish my first book. In fact, I published an entire four-title children’s book series all at once!
