We are super excited to finally share with you our Team Name for this years #FicFest 2016! Say hello to Team Australia! With this team you will have three mentors for the Picture Book team.
I am Elizabeth Rivera and I am the Team Leader. The team members are Tracey Cox and Holly Lowell.
I am a mother, wife, teacher, and writer. I have been writing for over 25 years. I have self published two children’s chapter books and have written a third book that is based on the books of the bible. I am a member of Florida’s Writers Association and many of the writer’s groups on Facebook.
My wish list for this contest is to be engaged from the beginning of the story. I like unusual characters that don’t always fit in with what the world says. Picture Books with vivid illustrations that can tell the story with or with out words.
Tracey M. Cox is a writer of words and a drawer of pictures. She is an advocate for children’s literacy and enjoys spreading her love of the written word around. Tracey is a member of SCBWI (PAL member) and the South Georgia Writer’s Guild. She is a KidLit TV team member. To help promote literacy in her area, Tracey started the biggest little book festival in South Georgia every year called the Books Love and Taters Book Festival.
Strong, believable characters
Basically anything that pulls me into a story and keeps me there. Make me love your characters and root for them through the situation they face.
