Hello, my name is Melissa A. DeJesus. I'm the creator of the Children's Corner Website and no I am not an expert.
I am a children's writer working towards my first book deal. As such, I am always researching the latest trends and reading the latest reference books to help me with my craft. I am also an avid children book reader. Not only do I read them to keep up with the market, but I simply love them. I love being drawn into the worlds they create and watch the experiences unfold before my eyes. There's something special about children books that adult fiction doesn't seem to have. For me, it's the innocence, the imagination, the fantastical and I love getting my hands on whatever is out there, old or new.
This website is a collection of my ideas, thoughts and experiences and is in no way meant to be the final word. It's a guide, suggestions to help you along the way. If you have any suggestions for me: a book I should read, a movie I should review, a video I should make, email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the trade: what reference book should I get, how do I write cover letters, email me at email@example.com. If I don't know the answer immediately, I will research the question and respond to you with my findings. I am an Instructional Designer by trade and I am used to finding answers in the most unlikely of places.
