Beth Stilborn at your service,
ready to share
Books, Encouragement, Teaching and Hope.
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.
In the pages of this website, you’ll find book recommendations, reflections on life, writers’ resources, and much more.
I’m a writer, mainly of middle grade fiction, and a reader across ages and genres. I love to share things I believe will encourage and teach, and give hope.
I write for kids like the kid I was, who often feel on the outside looking in.
I write to tell them, and myself, “You’re okay. We’re okay.”
The By Word of Beth Blog
In my blog, I share about books I’m reading, talk about writing craft and art, interview writers and illustrators, think about words, and muse about life in general and the writing life in particular.
Here are some recent posts. You can find more by clicking the Blog tab in the header menu.
For older posts or a particular topic, go to any post and search the sidebar archive by date, or click a topic in the tag cloud.
I want to thank my wonderful friend, Christy H., for coming up with the title of my website and blog: By Word of Beth.
I created the banners throughout the website using Canva.
