The Story of Water Rocks Publishing

As a former educator, community social worker, and mentor, I have always loved teaching and serving others. With a background in English-Creative Writing and Curriculum and Instruction, I knew early on I wanted to be a storyteller and an educator. After having my first son and deciding to stay home with him, my love of writing reignited and I began creating stories for young readers. 

During my traditional and self-publishing journey, I experienced many bumps in the road and found myself saying how I wished the journey would have been a lot easier, less stressful, and more educational. In enters Water Rocks Publishing. Our agency works with new and aspiring authors, helping them share their stories in the most creative, inspiring, educational, and entertaining ways.
