Hello, MagicBeans Bookstore Readers,
First, I'd like to thank Leat at MagicBeans Bookstore for inviting me to write on their blog. I appreciate the opportunity to spread the message about my books.
My name is Ellwyn Autumn. I'm a former public school teacher who now writes children's stories and fantasy novels. My picture book series, The Kamyla Chung Series, empowers children to become their own self-advocates. I'd like to take a moment to share with you why I write these books.
People often ask authors what inspires them to write. For me, there are many reasons but the most fundamental is to bring greater awareness to childhood trauma and the mental health of students in our schools. Drawing on my experiences as an educator, I write books about difficult issues children face every day that are intended to encourage viable solutions.
