And the winner is....

Maria with husband Toby, and children
Leif (2) and Kaia (7)
Maria Muscarella is a Nurse-Herbalist, homeschool mom, and a children's story writer. She is also the winner of my giveaway contest and will receive a signed copy of Teaching the Story: Fiction Writing in Grades 4-8 

She told me that she lives just outside of Asheville, NC in a 16-sided cordwood house on a small homestead. She says, "For my daughter's 7th birthday I wanted to write her a short story. Somehow this little story has spiraled into a completed chapter book that I am totally in love with. (I know, it's my work, but it's nice to be proud of what you've created, right?)"

I agree. As writers it's nice to be proud of the work which we create!

I hope that Teaching the Story will help Maria craft her own stories as well as those her children write too.
