I hope that my words provide hope and joy for your journeys. Beatrice and the Sunflower Gift and Gloria's Hope Tree are two of what I like to call my "heart projects," and I look forward to writing more! In my journals, you will find me composing poems, outlining ideas for children’s books, and capturing every bit of inspiration that comes my way. I also contribute articles about my anxiety and grief to a website called The Mighty to raise awareness about mental health.
I received a B.A. in English from Daemen College in May 2016, and I am currently a member of BNCWI (Buffalo-Niagara Children's Writers and Illustrators). I am truly grateful for the blessings in my life – the time I spend with my family and friends, the work I do as a preschool teacher aide, and my hometown of Buffalo, NY. Thank you for sharing this meaningful journey with me! You give me the courage to keep writing, and I am deeply thankful for your belief in me.
Kindest wishes, Stephanie
