Naomi Kinsman has always dreamed of plunging into a fictional world, like Lucy does in Voyage of the Dawn Treader. In Naomi’s first career, acting and directing for the theatre, this dream was inches from her reach. Writing, however, has made the impossible possible—starting with Spilled Ink, which won the Moonbeam Gold Medal for Educational/Activity book—and now Naomi regularly slips into book worlds and has the adventures of her life. Naomi shares this magic through her organization, Society of Young Inklings, dedicated to mentoring youth authors as they transform lives and communities with their powerful voices. Naomi's tween series, From Sadie’s Sketchbook, from Zonderkidz/Faithgirlz, includes Shades of Truth, Flickering Hope, Waves of Light and Brilliant Hues.
