Born in the Year of the Dragon, Vonnie Winslow Crist has had a life-long interest in reading, writing, art, myth, fairytales, folklore, and legends. Having been a night person since infancy, she is also quite fond of stars, moonlight, forests, owls, and other creatures of the darkness.
After attending Perry Hall Elementary, Parkville Junior High, and Perry Hall High, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from Towson University. She married, then raised three children, did freelance illustrating and writing, and taught poetry for the Maryland State Arts Council’s Artists in Education Program. Thirty years after graduating from Towson, she returned to her alma mater and earned a Masters in Professional Writing.
A firm believer that the world around us is filled with miracles, mystery, and magic, Vonnie still sees fairies amidst the trees, mermaids on jetties, and ghosts and goblins of all sorts in the shadows. Her garden overflows with herbs and statues of animals. Toadstool rings sprout regularly on her lawn. And she's found so many four-leafed clovers that she keeps them in a jar.
Vonnie invites bookstores, book groups, science fiction and fantasy cons, book festivals, teachers, home schoolers, writing groups, faerie festivals, and interested readers to contact her via her website: http://vonniewinslowcrist.com or blog: http://vonniewinslowcrist.wordpress.com or Facebook Author's Page: http://tinyurl.com/Fb-Vonnie-Winslow-Crist-Author for appearances, signings, school visits, interviews, and workshops.
