11221291_10101518595184887_8471310615068616879_nMy name is Brigitte Henry Cooper. I am a Kid-Lit Author, Stripes Enthusiast and All-Around Word Nerd! (That’s me, in the white dress! The scared-looking redhead is now stuck with me forever.)

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 ChildrenAs 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!) 

My lifelong dream of becoming a published Kid-Lit author is finally coming true! My debut series, Game Face, hits the shelves in January 2018. Published by ABDO, Game Face is the story of four feisty female friends who charge the fields before them with grit and girl power. I can’t wait to share it with you!

My second series, Odd Jobs, follows in Winter 2018. This collection of spooky ghost stories will have young readers turning the page and clutching the flashlight faster than you can say “Boo!”

I am constantly dreaming up new story ideas for future projects. The hilarious cast of characters and unique experiences in my own life provide plenty of worthy material. For example, I’m currently writing a manuscript inspired by my talented sister and her adventures in food science. (Science you can eat? Count me in!)

I hope you enjoy my little reading nook. Here, I’ll share stories, inspirations, photos and fun-facts. (Fun Fact: I have a weakness for Arnold Palmers and anything striped. Seriously…..any.thing.striped.)

I’m a hostess at heart, so visit as often as you’d like!
