Straight from Rhonda Walker. . .
EVERY DAY IS ICING ON THE CAKE OF MY LIFE. It is challenging, fantastic, miracle filled, and troubled -- sometimes all at once. There are memories of the blessings of family and friends, successes and failure. I live daily in grateful awareness for a God who provides abundant blessings, especially during times of embarrassing failures.
I discovered my passion for reading early in life (right after the ark anchored on a mountain top). In 1979, when my daughters were young, I returned to college. There, English and Education professors taught me some needed writing basics and opened the door to children’s thinking. In truth, though, I began writing for myself in 1975, and my style was already developed. God blessed me with a passion for reading, the love of writing, and whatever ability I possess.
With training, skills, and God’s help, I fulfilled a long-held dream of writing stories for young readers. Several years ago, two of my grammar stories were published in a Scott Foresman textbook for first graders, and plans are underway to put those stories and others into a grammar-series book. I write stories to encourage enjoyment and learning through reading.
My first adult book, “Beyond the Shadows Is Tomorrow: Stories of Women of Faith,” released in
2013. A journey into adult fiction began in 2014. I came to know Lucinda in a series of dreams. She was but a lovely young child in the first one, but the third dream opened the door, and her life unfolds to you in “Lucinda, My Dear.”
I live in
, and am available for children’s group/school/special events readings and signings. My husband and I sneak off on weekends to our small house on an Plano, Texas East Texas lake, making it easy to travel anywhere in the Dallas-Fort Worth/North-East Texas area. Since I love traveling, I am open to meeting just about anywhere.
I also speak to adult audiences and teen faith groups regarding my own life experiences.
