I am so excited to announce that Olivia and the Little Wayhas just been awarded the Seal of Approval from the Catholic Writers Guild. This is a great honor for me.
The Catholic Writers' Guild is a group of writers, artists, editors, illustrators, and allied dedicated to helping one another build a vibrant Catholic literary and artistic culture. We do this by encouraging each other to create, publish, perform, and share our work; by reflecting upon core Catholic values (i.e., those in accordance with the teaching of the Magisterium) in art; and by networking among ourselves and with others within the faith and literary communities. We are loyal to the teaching authority of the Church. Our regular and alumni members are practicing Catholic writers, while institutional members are persons or company supportive of Catholic writing; institutional members need not to be Catholic, but sympathetic to Catholic practices and morals.
This honor, in addition to the award bestowed on Olivia and the Little Way in the 2009 Catholic Press Association Book Awards, makes me very grateful to be an author providing Catholic fiction for children. Deo Gratias!
