How long have you been writing, or thinking about writing?

I've been writing approximately 9 years. I like to study the craft of writing. I studied four years with The Institute of Children's Literature with two diplomas, and I've studied for two years and continuing with the John Yeoman's Master Class on writing. I also take webinars from Writer's Digest and American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). In addition to Word Weavers, I'm a member of ACFW and SCBWI.

What genre do you like to write?

Mostly children's fiction, although I am considering adult fiction in the future.

Have you been published? If so, where and in what type of publication (books, magazine, online, blog, etc)

One of my short stories was published in a book called "Elevate Empathy" and another one was published in a Christian children's magazine; I published a book for middle grade: Izzy and the Real! Truth About Moose Boy; and I have a short story published in The Transformation Project. I have a picture book released by Guardian Angel Publishing. I wrote a middle grade novel, have a young adult novel ready to publish, and I'm working on a second young adult novel.

Have you ever attended a writers' conference?

Yes, I've attended many SCBWI conferences and the Christian Breathe Conference, as well as a writing conference held in Grand Haven several years ago.

In 3 years, what would you like to look back, and see from your writing efforts?

I would like to see more of my projects published. I enjoy being in the company of other writers.


Hi , my name is Deb Allard. I'm a Christian who enjoys writing for children of all ages.
