The Children’s Writers’ Coaching Club is pleased to welcome children’s author Bev Cooke to the club as our newest instructor.
Bev Cooke is first and foremost a writer. While young adult novels are her passion, she’ll write anything and everything that comes to mind – op-ed, journalism, book reviews, religious poetry and creative nonfiction are all areas in which she’s been published. But she’s proudest and most enthusiastic about her writing for Young Adults.
Her published novels include: Keeper of the Light, a historical fiction about an early Christian saint, from Conciliar Press; Feral, an edgy mainstream that Orca Book Publishers brought out, and Royal Monastic, a biography of Princess Ileana of Romania, also published by Conciliar.
Bev’s latest publication is a religious prose poem for the Orthodox Church: Akathist to St. Mary of Egypt, published by Alexander Press. When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing, feeling guilty about not writing or enjoying her time with her husband and two adult children, the cat and the homicidal lovebird.
