Hello, world!

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!

    Penny, may I read the WWII book about your uncle? I have thought of that book and that story much since you first told the story to me – dare I say it? – nearly 15 years ago.

    I’d love for you to read it. Give me a call and come by. I have a copy of it you can borrow.
