Spotlight on Author, Stephanie Center

FVP loves to share the works of other independent authors with readers. Here’s a bit about Stephanie and the links to a couple colorful books by Stephanie Center.

Author Stephanie CenterSince early childhood Stephanie has dreamed of being an author, she was recognized early on for her writing skills and throughout her teen years, published different works through various poetry books.

She is on a mission to help others on their life’s journey through her books to learn faster what took her a lifetime to find out. Through different mediums of art, her messages of happiness, choices, and love, seem to jump from the pages.

Besides being creative, she loves to dance, sing, volunteer and wish for everyone else’s wishes to come true. The one thing people don’t usually know about her is she LOVES to swing on the swings!

Here’s a review of THE KING OF AVERAGE:

51l9sKMAkmL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_I am delighted to have had the chance to be an ARC reader for this book. What fun! THE KING OF AVERAGE ranks high above the average read.

The clever wordplay and humor are noteworthy, but my favorite thing about the book is its old-fashioned sense of story. And I don’t mean the ‘old-fashioned’ that’s dusty and crusty and drear. I mean that fantastic and currently rare quality of creating an atmosphere that’s so vivid you can step inside. The story comes to life before your ‘eyes’.

Vibrant and sometimes zany characters swept me away as I traveled with the very relatable and sensible James. I often review on an author’s mastery of Voice, but in this case I’d have to say Schwartz has mastered ‘Voices.’- perhaps due to his extensive experience in television, film and theatre. I can hear each character speaking, as if a play was going on in my head. This is what I mean by ‘old-fashioned sense of story.’ It breathes without need of digital media. Though I can hardly wait to hear an audio book of this…especially if Schwartz reads it himself!

While I have harped on the rich story traditions that tie to the past, I must say the theme and moral of the story, woven through in the most enjoyable puns, are completely contemporary and valuable to both children and adults alike. It’s a rewarding journey to see James blossom, and a great reminder to keep moving forward on this wonderful journey we call life.
