I am glad to present the first author in the Writer’s Spotlight Wednesday series:
Nancy I. Sanders
“Every word I write is because I want to make a difference in this world.”
Nancy is an award-winning author who recently re-released her how-to book for children’s writers entitled: Yes! You Can Learn How to Write Children’s Books, Get Them Published, and Build a Successful Writing Career. The book offers an abundance of insight, tips and strategies to assist writers of all experience levels in achieving their writing goals.
Using the strategies that she reveals in her book, Nancy has built a successful career of her own as a children’s writer. She has written over 400 beginning reader stories, has had over 80 of her books published, and currently has 6 books under contract. Nancy admits that early on in her career, she had no knowledge of everything entailed in the world of writing for children. Penning her book, Yes! You Can Learn How to Write Children’s Books, Get Them Published, and Build a Successful Writing Career, is not only a testament to her increased knowledge and experience in becoming a successful published author in that market, but also an encouragement that if she can do it, then so can you!
“If one can, anyone can. If two can, you can, too!”
It’s evident that Nancy truly loves what she does. She revealed, “I love to write all over the house. It’s fun! I brainstorm at my patio table surrounded by sunshine and flowers. I research sitting in my living room looking out at the hummingbirds. I type on my laptop on our family room couch with feet propped up and both cats snuggled on my lap. Sitting at my office desk, I answer editor’s e-mails and type some more.”
When asked why she writes, Nancy responded, “Every word I write is because I want to make a difference in this world. Whether writing beginning readers to help children learn to read, or action-packed novels to help children love reading, or Bible stories to teach Truth, my passion is to make the world a better place, one heart at a time.”
