Emlyn (4)From an early age, Emlyn Chand has counted books among her best friends. She loves to hear and tell stories and emerged from the womb with a fountain pen grasped firmly in her left hand (true story). Her affinity for the written word extends to absolutely every area of her life:  she has published fiction across multiple genres, oversees and contributes as both an editor and an author to theNovel Publicity Guides for Writing & Marketing Fiction series, and loves the written word so much, she even married author Falcon Storm! Don’t forget that she is the founder and president of Novel Publicity too.

The book that changed Emlyn’s life is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crocket Johnson. It opened her eyes to the world that could exist if only she was willing to create it—a lesson she has never forgotten. Maybe that’s why she loves writing her Bird Brain Book series for children so much!

Emlyn’s first novel, Farsighted, won the prestigious Writer’s Digest Self-Published Novel of the Year award in 2012 for the YA category. She now writes most of her fiction under her real name, Melissa Storm.

What others are saying about the Bird Brain Books by Emlyn Chand

Poppy the Proud: “Poppy the Proud has so many great lessons in it – including teaching children that everyone is special and beautiful in their own way. The writing is perfect for the younger age set, and the beautiful illustrations by Sarah Shaw will help keep your little one engaged. My 5 year old loved it and reading Poppy brought about a conversation about bragging, friendship, and being special.” – Karen Toz

Courtney Saves Christmas: “This book is so stinkin’ cute. My kiddos loved it. The illustrations [by Noelle Giffin] are fun and really captivated my 4 and 5 year old. I love that Courtney’s adventure began because she wanted to say, “thank you.” What a great message to send during the holidays. I have a feeling this book will be read long after Christmas has come and gone.” – Delphina “Delphina Reads Too Much”

Vicky Finds a Valentine: “This children’s book is so cute and really let’s young children know what being friends is all about. The illustrations, done once again by Noelle Giffin, lend a nice touch to a great book. This book is for the younger set up to about 9 years old. I highly recommend this book to be in any child’s library. Both thumbs up!” – Naila Moon
