Children’s books: Essay contest winner!


As some of you may know, I’m an award-winning author of 5 children’s books. Recently, I entered my essay in TheAuthorsShow.com contest called 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading.  We were finalists and now I’m thrilled to announce I was chosen one of the winners!

You may wish to check out my children’s books: Award-winning Tails of Sweetbrier, Charlie the Horse, Charlene the Star, Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, and Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog. Each of these children’s books conveys valuable life lessons for children. For example, my award-winning autobiography details my story of transforming from a handicapped child to a horseback riding champion! It shows what can happen when you persevere. The winning essay describes why the backstory involved with Tails of Sweetbrier. The essay will be part of a book to be published by the AuthorsShow.com. It will also be published in an upcoming anthology about turning points in our lives.

The other children’s books: Charlie the Horse, Charlene the Star, Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog, and Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, and Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog are fictional children’s books told by the animal characters themselves. They focus on important life lessons such as perseverance, setting goals, teamwork and helping others. All of the adorable illustrations are done by my gifted sister, Holly Humphrys-Bajaj. Holly has also designed the covers for each of our children’s books. Young readers are sure to love the detailed illustrations by Holly.  I think you’ll agree the illustrations make the stories come to life.

My goal is to inspire children everywhere to reach for their dreams and remember they can beat the odds and realize their dreams. The ending statement in Tails of Sweetbrier is:

“You have the power to make your dreams come true so reach for them and don’t accept anything less!”
