ABOUT MICHELLE KENNEDY

  • I discovered the joy (and challenge!) of writing children’s PB’s a few years ago. Ever since then, I have been working to hone my skills in writing and learn more about the literary world, with the great hope and goal of getting my little MS’s published. Writing is a release for me. It’s a way of sharing a part of myself with others and it’s a way for me to be a kid again- by allowing my mind to travel back to childhood experiences with the freedom to create something unique that even the big kid in me will identify with. I have heard it said before that, “the joy is in the journey”. To see a book come to life, your words on a printed page for others to read and share… What could be better than that?! I am grateful to be a part of the SCBWI so that I can connect with other like minded souls who also share the same passion I do.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My mission is simple- to write engaging children’s picture books that will encourage young readers by helping them to realize that they are not alone in their struggles. My stories are about quirky characters that deal with real-life emotions within a fun or silly narrative. My hope is that every child who reads my books will feel connected to the characters and enjoy some laughs along the way.
