Episode #14 Tanya Ross The Authors Porch

Tanya Ross was born and raised in San Diego County, her “happy place.” Although Southern California is a particular kind of paradise, she desires a world where everyone is kind, compassionate, and upbeat, which became one of the themes of her novel, Rising Up. For thirty-two years she was an educator of English, history, AVID, and student leadership. She loves teaching and kids, her students a daily inspiration. Her exit from the educational arena allowed her to indulge her hopes, dreams, and goals in what she taught for so many years–writing. This first novel begins her lifelong dream of writing meaningful novels for young adults. When she’s not creating new worlds, you can find her reading, spending time with her husband and two kids, or walking her golden retriever, Honey.

Since then, she can be found enjoying the beautiful scenery for five months out of the year. Her stories take the traditional picture book experience and transform it by replacing illustrations by her nature photography. The books are written in her mother tongue, Dutch, and translated into English and French. Lieve’s inspiration comes from nature. The landscape is so beautiful. Being able to observe fantastic little creatures in their backyard made her a passionate nature photographer. Through time Lieve’s photo library became large. She wanted to share these little animals’ beauty, which gave her the idea to write children’s books. Frazie, the little American Red Squirrel, the character was born. One day in the garden, she suddenly saw Margot the groundhog waking up after hibernation, it became apparent to her. ‘No, it’s not about Frazie, it’s about me, Margot, you will have to write.’ Probably different than any other writer, her books did not start with words; they started with photos. Thanks to these books, she became BookGoSocial Top Voted Children’s Author 2017 and became Readers’ Favorite Finalist 2019 (Children –it a small genre)http://smarturl.it/e7uowx The second one’ Groundhog Secrets – Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Woodchucks’ won the IAN Book of the year 2018 and a Reader’s Favorite Book Awards 2018 (children non-fiction). http://smarturl.it/0psllg The third one, ‘ Time for Margot to Go to Bed’, has received a Book Excellence Award 2020. http://smarturl.it/e1mapx As a writer and a photographer, it is a joyous feeling to help reveal nature’s beauty to all kids, small and big ones.
