I’m Penny Durant, an award-winning author of nine published books for children ranging from preschool to young adult. I have also written a “true story novel” of an epic WWII story involving my uncle. Composer Michael Mauldin has put two pieces of mine to music. I am also a frequent speaker, an editor/critiquer, and I teach novel writing classes. I’ll be starting up a blog soon, so come back again!
