Hi there! My name is Jennifer Prevost. I am a wife, mother, nurse by day and aspiring picture book author by night. I’m so happy that you stumbled across my humble little blog. I created this site as an outlet for the energy and anticipation that accompanies my journey to become a children’s storybook writer. I know this process requires a tremendous amount of patience, persistence and a fair amount of thick skin. Luckily, I have all three. My hope is that I can tell the tale of my manuscript(s), from creation to publication, and start a conversation with anyone who may find themselves navigating similar waters.
Since the beginning of this journey, I have been searching far and wide for kindred spirits; writers both ‘the published’ and ‘the hopefuls’ expanding their own community. Please understand that I do not write from the point-of-view of an expert, rather I find myself on the opposite side of the spectrum. I am currently one of the new kids in KidLit town and I’m eager to meet my neighbors!
For my entire life, I have dreamed of seeing my words in print. My journey has taken me full circle, as picture books are where I fist fell in love with the reading. I am determined to learn as much as I can and create stories that will help children discover the magic which only exists within the pages of a book. I invite you to share your thoughts and comments. Regardless of where you are in your own publishing journey, maybe we can all learn a little from each other.
Thanks for reading, come back anytime!
