About the Author L.B. Anne
If you’re here, you probably love reading and/or you’re passing on your love of reading to your children. Not only that, you’re looking for books with characters that look like them, or stories they can learn about other cultures from. That’s how I got started. My mom loved to read, and so did I.
L. B. Anne is the author of the Amazon best-selling Sheena Meyer series. She is also the author of the Lolo and Winkle, Curly Girl Adventures, Everfall, Brave New World, Children of the Glades series, and more. She writes diverse chapter books geared toward six to fourteen-year-old readers (depending on the series). She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), a guest speaker; presenting at libraries and schools nationwide, a mentor, and a mental health advocate. L. B. Anne resides on the Gulf Coast of Florida with her husband. When she is not inventing new obstacles for her characters to overcome, you can find her reading, playing bass guitar, running on the beach, or downing a mocha iced coffee at a local cafe while dreaming of being your favorite author.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
