A Child’s Dream

Who doesn’t dream about being famous? When I was a child of 10 I already dreamed of being a famous writer. My best friend told me she would hold on to my letters as she expected me to be famous someday and she could sell them and make a lot of money. I am not close to being a famous name but it doesn’t mean I don’t have a passion for the writing I do.

I really love writing for children. When I’m in a classroom or in the library I always like to chat with children to find out who they like to read and what makes it interesting for them.

About TheWriteChris

I've been an intermittent writer for years and now I am taking the deep plunge. I will soon be be published in the Career Guide for Salem Press where I wrote about the Real Estate Industry. I am an active member of CHAIRS, a regional writer's critique group. I also do my best to keep informed of the publishing industry news and changes. Over the years I've written numerous short stories, a humorous book on being a Realtor and have a partly finished romance/fantasy novel. For about the last 10 years I've written skits for adults that run anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. In the past year I began writing for the children's curriculum at my church. This opened up my eyes and heart to writing for children - the writing genre I am now pursuing most actively.
