writing for children



A fellow writer and mom, MaryBeth Whalen, has a new book out…and I can hardly wait to read it! It’s titled, She Makes It Look Easy — and wow. The title intrigues me, as does this description from the Proverbs 31 site:

 Ariel Baxter has just moved into the neighborhood of her dreams. The chaos of domestic life and the loneliness of motherhood, however, moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood playdates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable.

Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.

A novel for every woman who has looked at another woman’s life and said, “I want what she has,” She Makes It Look Easy reminds us of the danger of pedestals and the beauty of authentic friendship.

You know you want to read it!

  1. Donna,

    Thanks for the shout out. MaryBeth’s book sounds like a winner. You’re good to promote it for her. I enjoyed MaryBeth’s keynote speeches at the 2011 Write2Ignite Conference. She’s very talented and handles a multitude of responsibilites. Probably many people look at her and say “She makes it look easy.”

  2. I’ve read and done MaryBeth’s Bible study for writers called “For the Write Reason”. Loved it. You’ll have to let us know how you ended up liking her novel. Happy summer, Donna!
