My name is Brigitte Henry Cooper. I am a Kid-Lit Author, Stripes Enthusiast, and Word Nerd! (That’s me in the white dress!)
Kid-Lit has always held a special place in my heart. As a child, I cherished visits to the bookstore in search of the latest American Girl, Baby-Sitters Club or Boxcar Children. As a college student, I studied Shakespeare by day but read chapter books by night. As a teacher, I admittedly ended math lessons a few minutes early so my students and I could dive back into our read-aloud (Shh! Don’t tell!) As a mom of two budding readers, my favorite activities are trips to our local library and nightly story time.
My lifelong dream of becoming a published Kid-Lit author finally came true in 2018 with the launch of my debut series, Game Face. Published by ABDO, Game Face is the story of four feisty female friends who charge the fields before them with grit and girl power.
My next two series, Odd Jobs and Phantom Finders, followed after. These collections of spooky ghost stories have young readers turning the page and clutching the flashlight faster than you can say, “Boo!”
I hope you enjoy my little reading nook where I’ll share stories, inspirations, photos, and fun facts. (Fun Fact: I have a weakness for Arnold Palmers and anything striped. Seriously…..anything striped!)
I am constantly dreaming and drafting future Kid-Lit stories, so stay tuned and feel free to visit as often as you’d like!
