You Can Learn How to Write Children’s Books, Get Them Published, and Build a Successful Writing Career, Nancy teaches writers how to manage their time and focus their energies so that they are writing each day with purpose in order to get published, earn an income, and satisfy their personal fulfillment as a writer. Amy Jackson, Senior Editor at Sleeping Bear Press said about her book, “Like no other how-to children’s writer’s book out there. An honest, realistic guide for anyone aspiring to become a career writer, Nancy I. Sanders demystifies the process from pen to paycheck. Yes! You Can is like having your own personal writing coach at your side.”
Nancy and her husband, Jeff, live in Chino, California. They have two adult sons, Dan and Ben, and a rambunctious cat-who-thinks-he’s-a-writer named Humphrey. www.nancyisanders.com
