JLB Creatives Publishing welcomes author Rhonda Walker!

We are thrilled to announce Rhonda Walker has joined our group of elite authors! JLB Creatives Publishing will be bringing you her next book Icing, Locusts, and Life. We are all super excited to be working with this great author and working hard to bring her masterpiece to readers in the future!

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 Plano, Texas, 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 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.
