I have been writing and drawing since I was old enough to hold a pen. Poetry and art have often competed or attention in my life, and they never really came together in a meaningful way until I was in my mid-forties.
As a writer, I write picture books, poetry, and verse novels. My first five books are fun, active, rhyming stories, four of which I wrote with my friend, Corey Rosen Schwartz. You can learn all about them here. I hope you will look for them at your local library or book store!
My first verse novel, which is also my first illustrated book, is titled MARI IN THE MARGINS, and is coming in May from Bandersnatch Books!
You may also find me now and then in the pages of children’s magazines such as Highlights for Children, Pockets, and Ladybug, and the Fun for Kidz magazines.
And here are some things about me that have little or nothing directly to do with my writing or art:
I am married to my true love and we have three grown children, four grandchildren, two tiny dogs, and a parrotlet.
When I'm not writing, I like to read, play games, and do creative stuff like draw, paint, or crochet. I also try to drag my family to the woods for a good hike now and then.
I'd love to hear from you! If you like, you can connect with me through Facebook or Twitter or you can email me at rebgowriter @ gmail dot com.
