"Never give up. And most importantly, be true to yourself. Write from your heart, in your own voice, and about what you believe in." ~ Louise Brown

"Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it."

Author Profile Pages

Today Melissa Ann Goodwin hosts Celery Tree. Melissa hails from Santa Fe, New Mexico but will soon be traveling the country with her artist husband in an RV they had specially made for the adventure. I can't wait to read her posts about their upcoming life on the road!
 "I treasure wonderful memories of a happy and carefree childhood growing up in the beautiful New England town of Andover, Massachusetts. I am especially grateful to the teachers there, who encouraged me to read the books that inspired me to become a writer. My middle grade novel, The Christmas Village, is available from Amazon and Smashwords. I have written many stories, poems and articles for children's magazines, and my non-fiction work has appeared in national magazines and newspapers. I'm also a certified yoga teacher, specializing in Restorative Yoga."   
Melissa hosts my Celery Tree co-founder and author daughter, L.A. DeVaul, featuring a guest post and interview. Want to know more about the fab L.A. DeVaul? One of the perks of Celery Tree membership is the author profile page. It's where you can learn about an author on one page, including links to all the important places where they and their books can be found online. For an example, view L.A. DeVaul's page.

  7. I love the idea of traveling around the country in an RV...just sort of seeing everything from the freeing "vacation" style perspective.

  8. Hi Melissa - it's great that Karen's set up Celery Tree - I think the concept is good news - and then we can buy and read other bloggers' work - and it'll be easy to find. I'm so looking forward to your travels - seeing some more of hubbie's art and your tales on your journey.

    Cheers to Celery Tree, your trips and you both - Hilary
