Author Mary Russel Writes Books for Kids
My friend, the author Mary Russel, writes books for kids. Yep – my friend Mary, the author. Well, I’ve never met her in person, but we’ve been online friends for a couple of years now.
I remember rejoicing with her when her first published book became available at both Amazon and Borders. (Yeah, so much for Borders, but Amazon is still with us.) That book was was Flickertail and Paint, Barnyard Sleuths, and it was written for the eight to twelve year old group of young readers.
Now, Mary’s second, third, and fourth books have been published. And these three are for ages 13 years and up.
It just seems incredible to me for someone to have four books published in the space of a couple of years, but that’s what Mary has accomplished. I am so proud for her.
This lady really is an inspiration to me, so I thought it only fitting that I should make a lens about her and her books.
And guess what? Mary herself visited the lens, and left me a lovely comment paying me a great compliment. Here’s part of what she wrote on my lens:
. . . this is so thoughtful of you and what a fabulous job you have done. I should have you write my book summaries for my book covers. Concise, accurate, and compelling.
That really made me feel good - for a published author to pay a compliment to my writing! After all, it is SHE who is the author, not me. I just managed to pay halfway decent attention in school most days, that’s all.
Thank you so much, Mary!
