  • Did you know April is National Poetry Month? If you think poetry is boring, you need to join me on Thursday, April 16th, at 6 PM at the Travelers Rest, SC branch library as I share some decidedly NOT boring poetry about middle age.
  • I so enjoyed my visit to the Irmo Branch Library in Columbia, SC, earlier this month. Not only was the staff incredibly accommodating, it's a beautiful facility with interesting displays, a great children's section and a special area for teens. A good library is such a precious resource!
  • I had a wonderful time talking about games (and playing them!) last month with students at Yulee Elementary. The Authors-in-Schools program is the best part of the Amelia Island Book Festival and I was honored to be a part of it.
  • Have you always wanted to write but aren't quite sure how to get started? Come join me November  9-14 at John Campbell Folk School in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. I'll be teaching a class called "Finding Your Niche as a Writer" and would love to help you do just that.

I know we're close to an indie bookstore

Hello — and thanks for stopping by! I’m an author and speaker based in Greenville, South Carolina, and I’m delighted to meet you. Stick around and learn more about me and my books; take advantage of the resources on my student page or links page; think about whether I might be a good fit for your next event; or just have fun looking at my pictures! If you’d like to stay in touch, please sign up for my newsletter.

My books: Available at brick-and-mortar and online bookstores everywhere, all of my books are fun and family-friendly. The newest is The Art of Stone Skipping and Other Fun Old-Time Games, from Imagine/Charlesbridge Publishing. Offering nearly 200 pages of fun facts about the world’s most beloved games, The Art of Stone Skipping is a terrific resource for families, churches, senior centers, schools . . . even companies looking to do a little team building. I’m also the author of A New Mother’s Prayers, A Mother of Sons, Dancing with My Daughter, and She of the Rib — four collections of "reality" poetry that explore everything from the terror of teaching your 15-year-old to drive to the undeniable healing properties of chocolate. My poems are also featured in a number of anthologies, including Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reader’s Choice 20th Anniversary Edition, A Daughter is Life's Greatest Gift, The Harsh and the Heart, From the Porch Swing, and Echoes Across the Blue Ridge.

My websites: Come right here to www.JayneJaudonFerrer.com to keep up with my latest news, see if I’m scheduled to be in your neck of the woods, look for helpful writing or reading resources, or to contact me about speaking at your next event. You might also want to visit www.YourDailyPoem.com, another website I maintain, which offers a diverse selection of classic and contemporary poems that I promise you’ll enjoy. Sign up for a free daily, weekly, or monthly poem — or for my famous annual "Poetry Parade" that happens every April in honor of National Poetry Month.

My blog: You never know what topic you’ll encounter at "The Comma Goddess Speaks: Musings on Life’s Joys & Vexations." I might share pictures and picturesque details about a hike through my beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, or I might cut loose on the sorry state of customer service in America these days. The opinions are all mine, the comments are all yours; it makes for a lively time!

My social media: Follow me on Facebook or Twitter for real time updates and spontaneous observations on life as we’re living and loving it.

Thanks again for dropping by. Hope to see you soon!

Jayne
