Hometown: Grand Haven
June 24, 2012
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.
Mostly children's fiction, although I am considering adult fiction in the future.
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 that will be released soon 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.
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 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.
