Still a Family, by Brenda Reeves Sturgis, illustrated by Jo-Shin Lee


I’m a native Maine writer who lives at the edge of the woods, where I am lucky enough to see deer, hedgehogs, turkeys and an occasional bear out my back window.

I began my writing career in 2004, after attending an author visit where I posed the curious question, “How can I become an author too?”

I am married to my wonderful husband Gary of 28-years, and am the mother of four amazing children and eight much-loved grandchildren.

I am available to present at libraries, birthday parties, and school visits.  Find out more
