Bobbie Chalekian, author of The Legend of The Lamb And The Lion
As a children's book author you will find that Bobbie is unique in the fact that she writes in a way that will captivate not only children but also the adult who may be reading to the child. You will find words occasionally mispelled in the story done purposely for the intent of bringing the characters into a more realistic dialoging of today. The illustrated characters (which she never dreamed she could do) are also created and painted by her.
Having worked with countless numbers of children in her church since 1985, the author has had many rewarding experiences involving the children. She has not only written several scripts and songs for children's musical outreaches, including puppet scripts, but has also directed productions including a team of several other musicians including herself as pianist. She writes scripts and leads the singing for her church's annual Children's Church Christmas Celebration for all four church services. Bobbie also leads in piano or guitar for four other ministries.
Prior and during the first few years of her marriage, she worked as a patholgy lab technician. Later, while her husband and she raised two daughters and a son, Bobbie worked as a school secretary for many more years, thus further developing her skills and experience with other children. She loves entertaining and cooking for her family and friends. Her family now includes a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters. Amongst her God-inspired talents and other gifts, painting animal portraits and song writing are her favorites.
The author is a graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature located in West Redding Conneticut.
