Writer Bio

I'm from the dramatic mountains of Colorado, then to the deep snows of Alaska to the green vegetation of California. All my life, I have told, written, or drawn stories. After graduating from college at Colorado University in Boulder, I became a first-grade teacher in Alaska. I have returned to the writing after years teaching art to children; 10 years as a professional gardener; and 12 years as storyteller at Asia Art Museum, plus telling at swaps, etc.; while activity in SCBWI, Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators; NSN, National Storytelling Network; SAC, Storytelling Association of California, and CWC, the California Writers Club in Berkeley, CA. It's never too late to finish a project and sometimes time, distance, and experience makes a better story.

Writing Style

Bobbie writes fantasies about faeries, elfin folk, trolls, pixies, tree sheegahshees, and all the other spirits in the Inbetween realms in nature, as well as telling a good tale.

Writing Goal

GOAL: for the 2017 write-a-thon --> to write eight folktales framed to read without interruption from one story to another called, 'FIRE, the hunger.' And so, I did better got a couple stories in about the gods and volcanoes, and a personal interview.

Fundraising Goal
