Hello and welcome! I’m Brenda Davis Harsham.
I live in New England with my fantastic husband and three story-telling children. We are surrounded by music, gardens and magic.
I’ve been telling stories and seeing poetry in rain puddles. For as long as I can remember.
This site is for kids of all ages.
My poetry and prose has been published at the places listed in Publications.
Fine art prints are available to purchase on the Society6 website. These include a series of abstracts in nature.
I publish occasional fairy tales written by kids, but I am not soliciting manuscripts at this time. They are published under the By&4Kids group, just click here or on the side bar.
I love visiting schools. I perform puppet shows, do readings, teach poetry, and discuss writing as a career/craft. My email address is below.
If you’re interested in collaborating or illustrating a post, please contact me at the email address below.
