Hometown: Grand Haven
June 24, 2012
I've been writing approximately 4 years. I like to study the craft of writing. I'm currently taking a children's literature course through the Institute of Children's Literature. I'm also a Christian.
Mostly children's fiction, although I am considering nonfiction.
One of my short stories 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 had a picture book considered by an editorial board for 6 months, and then it was declined. Currently a publisher has another of my picture books under contract, waiting to be published. I'm praying about that.
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.
I would like to grow in the craft of writing and 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.
Such a wonderful group of accomplished and encouraging writers. I feel humbled and blessed to be included. Thank you.
