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

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.

What genre do you like to write?

Mostly children's fiction, although I am considering nonfiction.

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 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.

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 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.
