Thanks for accepting my invite, Stephenie!
I'd actually advise that you keep teaching part-time as well. Take it from someone who is doing it full-time. It is extremely difficult to earn enough to live on from writing alone. Also, in this economy, it would be good to have a regular income, no m... more

Hi Stephenie,
Thanks for the invite. I hope to meet a lot of people here and learn a lot too! I forgot to mention in my profile, but I'm interested in Christian writing, as well.

Hi Stephenie
Thank you for inviting me to be a friend.

Hi Stephanie, Thanks for the invite. I want to check out your link later. It looks really good! We all need faith in our lives. We all need freinds in our lives too. Thanks for being another one of mine! Deb :-)

Hi Stephanie Thanks for adding us as friends. My wife teaches 6th grade and is a big fan of Will Hobbs books you might give him a look. Our best to you Tom and Tess

Thanks for accepting my invite, Stephanie. Love your book list. I did a week-long promotion for Hattie Big Sky on my blog.


Loved the book and Kirby Larson's writing.

Hi Stephanie, It's nice to meet you
Comment by Monika A on 3/4/2008 at 8:11 PM:
Thanks for adding me to your friends! You teach the age group I write for! I've always been a little "jealous" of writers who are already teachers --teachers have such a great window into the lives, language, and interests of kids. It must come in handy. :)
Comment by Annie Galvin Teich on 2/17/2008 at 12:26 PM:
Hi, Stephanie. I'm sure your teaching experience will help you a lot as you develop your writing career. Good luck. I look forward to seeing some of your work.

Thanks for the invite Stephanie :)
Comment by Shari Lyle-Soffe on 2/13/2008 at 2:20 PM:

I apologize. I don't think I ever responded to your comment. The books I recommended are all picture books. Anything by Lisa Wheeler or Dori Chaconas is good.

Nice to see you here.

Thanks for inviting me to be a friend. And you're not very far away from me, I'm about 50 miles east. I think it's east.
Comment by Glenda Byars on 1/20/2008 at 8:03 AM:
Thanks for accepting my invitation. I am interested in your teaching career, up in what seems to me to be a frozen tundra! I grew up in the Deep South, central Alabama, and have never ventured far from home. HOWEVER, I, Thoreau and Dickinson, have travelled much in this tiny space. Smal... more
Comment by Joseph Sottile on 1/13/2008 at 1:01 AM:
You would love my poetry book, WAITING TO SEE THE PRINCIPAL AND OTHER POEMS. I've been retired seven years and I still miss teaching. That's one big reason that I write.
Comment by Dandi Mackall on 1/2/2008 at 4:56 PM:
Thanks for the comment, Stephanie. I love legends, too. The Legend of Saint Nick came together when I discovered the guy we believe became Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, was orphaned when he was young. I wrote the Legend of Ohio for Sleeping Bear press after I discovered a wonderful oral tradition from a... more

Hi Stephanie,
It's good to have a new friend!
I enjoyed reading your bio and I can identify with getting cranky when you can't write. I have that problem when I don't get a chance to work on my own projects, especially painting!
Good luck with all of your creatio... more

Hi Stephenie,
I really enjoyed reading your profile. I see the "SON" in your eyes.

Comment by Julie Stiegemeyer on 12/2/2007 at 5:17 PM:
Hi Stephenie, sorry I never answered your question. I am working on a variety of things, a couple of different pbs (one for CPH) and a chapter book. Oh, I'm also finishing up the last quarter of Growing in Christ for CPH.

How about you?

Hi Stephenie,
It is great to have you join our JF community!
Best, Tracy

Hi Stephanie! Thanks for inviting me to be one of your friends! I look forward to hearing more from you!
Comment by Mary Gantz on 11/4/2007 at 8:21 AM:
I have taught 4th grade for 8 years now and have really loved it! They are at the age that they have independence, but they still are little children and like the teacher. With that said, I am moving down to 2nd grade next year. I have taught 5th and now 4th and I feel it is time for a change. W... more

I don't think we've met, but maybe we did, at a SCBWI event.

I'd love to take one of your classes, but I'm not fond of driving in the Cities in the winter.
Comment by Laura Salas on 10/24/2007 at 8:58 AM:
Hi Stephenie! Good to see you here, too. I know your name from the SCBWI email list...and have we met in person, too? (You look familiar, but I'm terrible at remembering people...I'm sorry!) I'm teaching a one-day workshop on writing for the educational market in Dec. at the Loft in Mpls. Maybe I'll... more
