Most of the time you'll find Beverly in front of the computer, writing stories young voices whisper in her ear. Other times she's snapping pictures of wildlife, clouds, and flowers. She has fifteen books published for children and teens, some of them award winners, like the Children's Literary Classics, Sharp Writ Awards, and Next Generation Indie Awards, as well as others.

To relax she plays the piano. Her kitties don't appreciate good music and hide when she tickles the ivories.

Happy Reading. She hopes you enjoy her novels and picture books.

Beverly Stowe McClure When a child, teen, or adult tells me how much they enjoyed my story and perhaps it even made a difference in their life. That's what it's all about.

The Red Casket (Del Toro Moon, #2) The Red Casket by Darby Karchut

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


After reading Darby Karchut’s DEL TORO MOON a couple years ago, I’ve been waiting for more about the Del Toro family and their talking horses. Yes, their horses are very intelligent.

Thank you, Susan. The contest was a lot of fun. A nail-biter to the end. I hope you enjoy the novel. Your book Abithica is a clever story. Imagine having to live like that. I'm not saying how so I won't give it away for others. :)
