FOR EVERYONE: Looking for a Good Book? I GOTCHU!

Hello all!

One of the most wonderful things about being in the #HamlineMFAC program at #HamlineUniversity (St. Paul, MN) is spending time with the amazing, award-winning authors who teach there. Here are just a smattering of titles--there are so much more!

Check out these picture books, early reader, middle grade, and young adult books by our esteemed faculty as well as their recommendations by other authors. Also, we have plenty of alum who are being published at an astounding pace! You can find their books too! Lots of new releases all around!

I'm here to tell you, as a fiction writer, being part of this program is in the top five BEST DECISIONS I've ever made! Definitely CONTACT ME with any questions!

Love to all! And HAPPY READING!

Daisy Rain

Daisy has spent over 25 years in the classroom and has managed to preserve her sanity—mostly. Actually, she feels quite blessed to be doing what she loves. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology in 1990 and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2004. She will graduate with a Master of Fine Arts in writing for Children and Young Adults at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota in July of 2021.

In the summers, you can find Daisy in her gardens with her husband. You might also catch her in her office writing underneath a real chandelier. As often as she can, though, she loves spending time with her grandbaby, Wiggle, who was born on her birthday and her grandniece, Giggle, who was born on Christmas Eve. Truly, these children are bright lights in her world.

If you are interested in having Daisy speak for your school district, provide professional development for your staff, or visit your school to talk to students, please contact her through this website.
