When Dreams Come to Fruition

When Xlibris searched for the rightful candidate to be featured in this month's Author Spotlight, Judy Snider was the obvious choice. Apart from achieving her publishing dreams, she also garnered literary honours for not just one, but two of her books—twice in a row.

Mom's Choice Awards—an award-giving body that champions family-friendly media, products, and services—recognised Snider's works by bestowing her this year with the silver seal for Goldy's Baby Socks. I Love You, Be Careful, a book she co-wrote with her sister, also bagged the same recognition the previous year.

Apart from being a licensed clinical social worker, she is also a member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. A resident of Virginia, she currently lives with her husband, two sons, and two cats. In a two-part series on the Xlibris Blog, Snider gives readers an in-depth look into her journey. She talks about her self-publishing experience, her passion for infusing family values in the pages of her books, the struggle of overcoming "writing demons", and how aspiring authors can realise their writing dreams.
