I am Michelle Nelson-Schmidt, I live in Lilburn, Georgia and I have the great privilege of getting to be an author and illustrator for EDC Publishing. After about 10 years eeking my way towards that goal while working full-time as a mother and graphic designer, I am finally doing it full time. Sometimes I need to pinch myself when I realize that this is actually my life. I still sometimes look behind me to see the ‘author’ that a person next to me is talking about. I write and illustrate books for kids. Wow! THIS IS MY LIFE! I travel to schools all over the United States reading them my books, talking about my journey and encouraging them to follow their dreams - with everything they’ve got - no matter what! Because my life is magical, it truly is and every minute, even the doubting, painful ones were so worth it to get to here, I want every person I know and meet to understand that this life is meant to be magical - and we all can have a magical life. You just have to have the courage to look for it and work for it. I love that I get to show my children and all the children I meet (over 200,000 now) that life is what you make it. That persistence and hard work will overcome almost any obstacle – and I of course have to make sure that they know reading is pretty much the key it all, no matter what your dream. When I am not traveling I am busy being silly and having fun with the loves of my life - my husband Kevin, my son Noah, my daughter Sophia and our four crazy dogs, Lucy, Rufus, Skyler and Otto Von Schmidt. They are all my everything and I love them more than bees love flowers!
