Greetings, readers! Today, I would like to share with you a talented new voice in the writing world. Please give a warm welcome to Ellie Collins…
Introducing a bright and fresh new face in the publishing world – an author with a creative and unique voice and viewpoint!
Ellie Collins, 11, is preparing to publish her debut book, Daisy, Bold & Beautiful, the first in a series of middle grade books.
Who is Ellie?
First and foremost, she’s a gymnast, on both a girls gymnastics team…
…and a trampoline and tumbling team.
She plays piano…
And she studies hard in the sixth grade.
And when she’s not doing any of that, she’s playing video games or hanging with her friends. She always finds time for reading, though, and she’s a huge fan of Greek mythology. It was that genre that inspired her upcoming book. Until it hits the shelves (tentatively scheduled for April 1st, 2018), she’ll be by to share a bit of Greek myth trivia with you each week. Just like this:
Join us next week for another exciting Greek Mythology Minute with Ellie. She’ll have her book description ready to share for the first time, too! Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Daisy, Bold & Beautiful ~
It’s April Fool’s Day. D.J. stumbles her way through her first day at her new school, convinced she’ll be picked on for being the biggest fool of all when she can’t find her classes.
Luckily, an awesome group of three girls adopt her as their new bestie. D.J. can’t believe her good fortune – except for one little detail. She has nothing in common with her fast friends.
How do you tell a group of extreme, hard-core gamers that you’re a…gardener? Do you risk losing your new friends by admitting to who you really are and what you really like to do? Wouldn’t it be safer to just try to learn to love video games?
D.J. is gifted with some words of wisdom from the best gardener of all – Persephone, the Goddess of Spring. Will she take Persephone’s advice? And what assistance does D.J. have to offer the goddess?
