Welcome NF Fest Blogger Lesa Cline-Ramsome!
Lesa Cline-Ransome grew up near Boston. She credits her mother with instilling her love of reading by taking her weekly to fill her arms with books at the library. When her mother gave her a diary, Lesa quickly graduated from writing about crushes and friends to writing stories. Her husband, illustrator James Ransome, encouraged her to write for children. Today she has seven picture books, mostly biographies, four children, and numerous writing awards.

Hi Lisa. We met in October at the Highlights picture book biography workshop (mine is about Horace Mann). I'm revising, revising, revising and keeping your advice front and center about bringing in his voice. Hope all is well!ReplyDelete
I just read your new books book Lisa, "The Power of her Pen". I did not know about Ethel's story. Thanks for bringing her to life. We also met at the Picture book Biography workshop in October at Highights. All the best!ReplyDelete

Welcome, Lesa! I'm so very glad you're here!ReplyDelete
Your Harriet book showed me it's possible to write a powerful biography in few words. I met you at Highlights and I look so forward to hearing from you here!ReplyDelete
