leave a comment »

The 2013 Children’s Book Festival at the University of Southern Mississippi took place April 10-12th. It is an annual book festival that is open to all Children Librarians and Teachers.

This year librarians and teachers visited booths of various authors and attended several presentations put on by accredited children’s authors, one author being, K F Ridley, bestselling author of “The C Walker Adventures” series.

The Half Asian author talked briefly to me about her first experience being involved in the Children’s Book Festival, her publishing company, and her new book.

In Ridley’s presentation she talks to the audience about her childhood. She was abused everyday by her father. She was a misfit and the only Asian student all throughout grade school. She revealed her pain and her plans to create Fantasy stories to escape her harsh reality.
