About the Author
Dr. Verdell A. Ware nee Hield was born on Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas. Because of her love for children and an innate desire to work with them, she dreamed of one day becoming a teacher. This dream helped to inspire her to aim high. Her aspiration to teach was fueled by a strong family support system and the examples of several caring, dynamic, and inspiring teachers who served as role models. Subsequently, she developed a special love for literature and writing and became an avid reader and with hopes of fulfilling her life-long mission.
The author received her early education in the Bahamas. She attended the College of the Bahamas where she graduated as a trained and certified teacher; later, becoming a certified school administrator by the Bahamas Ministry of Education. She obtained her undergraduate and graduate degrees in education from the University of Miami, and her post graduate degree in educational administration from Pensacola Christian College. During her more than thirty-year teaching career, the author served in several education arenas, including that of principal, college adjunct instructor, and college president.
The author’s motivation and inspiration for writing children’s literature came as a result of seeing the glow on her students’ faces as they listened to stories that captured their attention. After story times, most of them either requested an encore reading, or they inquired about where they could find the books because they wanted to read the stories for themselves. Watching her students’ interest in books grow was a rewarding experience. Subsequently, as a teacher and administrator, classroom and school libraries that catered to motivational books were always high on her priority list.
Dr. Ware has two daughters, a son-in-law, and five grandchildren. She presently resides in Florida, USA with her husband where she is currently continuing the next chapter of her career as a writer and an Education Consultant.
