The Best Thing about being Indie.

One of the best things about being an Indie author is the beautiful people I get to meet. I would like to introduce you to Lucy Lombos. 

She is a remarkable woman, originally from the Philippines and now resides in Canada.  Along with her extensive resume as Academy Directress - Lombosco Academy (based back home) she is a Language & Literacy Advocate, a Children's Book Writer, Editor-In-Chief, Buon Giorno Newsletter, Social Media Administrator: Lombosco International Website, a Blogger and Teaches English to foreigners.
Please make Lucy feel welcome and check out her blog, books, or facebook page and share her spirit with the world.  (Links below)

Hi Lucy, why do want to write for children?
First of all, I wanted to write for children because as a teacher-storyteller, I would buy books for my read-aloud or read along storytelling sessions or circles... Then, I decided to write my own stories and share them all to the kids, particularly the Filipino children in our school. I have a collection of children's books primarily because I love children... they make me happy. I feel young with them, and I'm a little bit crazy when I'm with them.

Who was the biggest inspiration in your life?
Moreover, this is because I'm a mom of three wonderful children. I love to share my experiences to them and pass on the golden values that I learned from my mom who is an excellent storyteller. My grandmother was once a reading teacher, too. They inspired me a lot. And my husband is supportive of what I do.
Literacy is my advocacy since 2000.
