One of the reasons I'm so excited about presenting Sylva to you is because she is an author of children's books. Regular readers of my blogs will know what a passion I have for children's authors and the importance of reading and literacy for children. I owe so much to my late father for the care and concern he instilled in my siblings and I for the power of the written word. His weekly trips to the Dunedin Public Library on a Saturday morning were and always will be remembered as a highlight of my childhood. Surrounded, as children are these days by the visual stimuli of video and gadgets, we sometimes forget how important reading really is to our youngsters' brain development.
It takes a special author to write for children, to make it real and believable to them and to write at a level they can both understand and still stretch for, in their literary journey. Sylva Fae writes for children and does it beautifully, so it is with real pride I give you this week's Indie Author of Excellence - Sylva Fae.
