Hi! I'm Stephanie. I've been in the writing, editing, and publishing industries since I was about five years old. I published my 1st story at age eight in a special volume with the Coronado Public Library. I later went on to pursue a BA an English...mostly so that I could stay up late reading Charles Dickins, Frances Hodgsen Burnett, C.S. Lewis, Laura Ingalls Wilder, T.S. Eliot, and Emily Dickinson. After receiving a Masters in Educational Counseling, I worked as a School Counselor before becoming a mother. Now? You can find me reading aloud every night to my three little girls (born 2006, 2009, and 2012) - with dramatic voices, of course! Together, we visit the library at least thrice a week to discover new literary masterpieces.

Obviously, we really enjoy reading...
