Sharon Thayer, Children's Book Author and Speaker

National Award-winning Author Spreading Magic and Positive Messages.

Sharon’s journey from dyslexic, non-reading child to national award-winning author has been an adventure filled with all the dramatic twists and turns of a great story. In one delightful chapter, she owned a nature-based kid’s center/summer camp in the mountains of Colorado where she discovered her passion for leading children to live their own stories built on foundations of respect, values, and inner strength. Today, Sharon continues pursuing that passion through speaking and writing stories that travel to magical worlds and paths of self-discovery.

The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from her book:

Each book holds a story that has been lovingly created to infuse imagination and inspiration into a child's life, while establishing lore and legend for generations to come.

Why the author is an authority on the subject of her book:

As a kid's center/summer camp owner, teacher, mother, and grandmother I have spent decades observing what reaches into the hearts of children and make their eyes sparkle. Working with children of all abilities and ages, I have gained an understanding of what makes a difference, what makes magic, and what make it memorable.

With a BS from Iowa State University and nine state, national, and international book awards, I continue to build the mountain as I look to the stars.

There is a problem growing - literally growing - at the North Pole because children around the world are being good. Santa's beard grows a little each time children share, play fair, do their best, tell the truth...
