Happy Reading by Vera - Children's Books

Life as a Children’s Book Author

Even before I started Happy Reading by Vera in 2014, I’ve always had an interest in becoming a children’s book author. I love creating fun stories that captivate the hearts of little kids, and so I worked hard to make my dream into a reality.

My first books, A Bee on My Bike (2014) and Zach and His Cat (2015) both appeared in Storymonster.com, a family magazine. My third Children's Book, "Where Shall We Go?" was also featured on Reading With Your Kids Podcast. My Children's Books have been a part of the Dallas Book Festival 2016, I'm Every Woman Community Health Fair, 2016/2017/2018, Various Book Expo/Festivals in Texas. My third book, Where Shall We Go? was released June 13, 2017 and was awarded Author Talk About It 4 Out of 5 Stars Book Award. My fourth book, Monica and Michelle Travel the World was released April 2018. And I also published a fiction book, What? Jury Duty! in March 2018.

You can take a look at my books at the Dallas Public Library Dallas, Texas, Ellen Brooks West Memorial Library of Forney, Texas, Some Savanna, Georgia Schools Libraries, Various Elementary Schools in East Texas, Houston, Texas and South Carolina.

Personal Life

I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family, most of whom fondly call me “Sister.” Aside from these hobbies, I also love working in my church where I serve as the President of the Women's Ministry,  and feeding the homeless ministry. 

I am a retired combat veteran. I served the U.S. Army with honor and distinction. My dedication earned me two Bronze Star Medals.

Writing With Passion

It is my intent to encourage children to enjoy reading their favorite Children's Books.
