Valerie Lowrey Doherty began writing children’s fiction over a decade ago with the hope her stories would be fun, engaging, comforting, and educational. Additionally, she wishes that the stories promote a love of reading for young readers.

She worked many years as a speech-language pathologist and early childhood educator in a number of settings. Her varied experiences with young children fostered professional interests in early language and literacy development and eventually launched her desire to become a children’s author.

Because of her dedication to literacy, she donates a portion of her royalties to organizations that support literacy efforts for children and adults.

Valerie lives in the midwestern United States, sharing her time betwee

Laura Ingalls Wilder
“Laura felt a warmth inside her. It was very small, but it was strong. It was steady, like a tiny light in the dark, and it burned very low but no winds could make it flicker because it would not give up.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder, The Long Winter

Vincent van Gogh
“Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.”
Vincent Van Gogh

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sonnets from the Portuguese

Anne Frank
“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”
Anne Frank

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“I bid the chords sweet music make,
And all must follow in my wake.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
