Alison Clarke - An Author's Journey

Alison Clarke will discuss her journey with two bouts of cancer and how it transformed her life – it was a primary reason why she started the journey towards being an author. She'll share her self-publishing journey with her two illustrated children’s books, The Adventures Of Eli The Elephant and Eli Goes To The Moon. Alison will talk about her experience entering grad school and the reasons why she attended the program, her award-winning young adult fantasy series, and the journey that led to publication.
