Please welcome author Beverly Stowe McClure!
When Beverly was a child, she hated to read. Even though her eighth-grade teacher sent her poem “Stars” to a high school anthology, and it was published in Young America Sings, she hated to write. In spite of her rocky relationship with books, she attended Midwestern University, graduated, and became a teacher. Reading Dr. Seuss and other great children’s books to her sons and to her students made her realize what she’d been missing: reading was fun. Now, she reads and she also writes. Her stories and articles have been published in leading children’s magazines. One article was reprinted in a Scott Foresman PreK/K Anthology. Her “Breakthrough” article appeared in the June 2007 issue of Writer Magazine. She has four novels published: Listen to the Ghost, Secrets I Have Kept, Rebel in Blue Jeans, and Just Breeze. Six more of her stories are under contract.
Beverly lives in the country with her husband and cat, where deer, skunks, and armadillos occasionally visit. Her three sons are grown and have given her lovely grandchildren.
Just Breeze, for tweens and teens, is Beverly’s first book from 4 RV Publishing LLC.
About Just Breeze:
Eighth grade starts out the same as every other year for Breeze Brannigan. She’s still the tallest student, boy or girl, in her class, wears shoes that would fit an elephant, and her smile reveals dazzling braces that blind everyone within ten feet. Then she meets Cam, the new boy in school who speaks with an accent and must be from another planet, for none of the earthling boys she knows are so polite. He also has a secret, a secret that could mean life or death for Cam and his mother and that Breeze must help him keep.
Just Breeze can be purchased from the publisher, 4 RV Publishing, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble
And other leading bookstores such as Book-A-Million and Powells.
