Phyllis Wheeler set a goal at age 13 to write a children’s book, a journey with lots of detours. She’s written for daily newspapers, worked on airplanes as a mechanical engineer, and raised four children–doing some homeschooling along the way. Recently, she and a friend started a book review vlog for homeschoolers at BringingUpBooklovers.com . Finally in 2021 she achieved her long-term goal. Elk Lake Publishing Inc. published The Long Shadow for ages 10-14, her time travel tale focused on racial reconciliation. Favorite saying: Let’s reach out beyond our comfort zones!
