A voracious reader all her life, Silke Chambers’ childhood favorites were all the Oz books by L. Frank Baum, and The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Her love for reading grew into a love of writing, and she has won awards and published short stories related to her work as a nurse through Writers’ Digest and local journals. She lives in northeast Ohio, where nothing happens, with her family, and writing buddy, a cockatiel named Jesse. View her website at silkechambers.com.
