The message from my book that I want to bring to other people is how to be accepted; how to learn and adapt to new environments, and to just be proud of who YOU are.Isabella Murphy, Award Winning Youth Author & Poet
KIDS NEWS & REVIEWS: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
ISABELLA: I’m the author of From Dark To Light. It’s a popular picture book for children and their families. I’m also the proud recipient of First Place Winner of the Penn Craft Award in the category of children’s books. I also write poetry and won the 2018 Half Moon Bay Library Teen Poetry Contest for my poem, “I Felt Rhapsodic,” inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickinson. I have presented numerous readings of my work to youth and adult audiences in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Texas. I love writing and sharing my stories, and also enjoy acting, playing guitar, singing, and golf.
