What would you like to know about me?
If you would like a short version of who “Brigitte Brulz” is, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
Long version of who I am:
I am a homeschooling mom who loves to stay busy. I have enjoyed teaching Sunday School, leading a homeschool group, leading Vacation Bible School, and organizing field trips. With my family, I enjoy volunteering, gardening, riding the family boat, fishing, and visiting new places.
Of course, I also enjoy reading and writing! It’s very challenging for me to go more than a week without visiting a library. Even going a week is too long sometimes. Am I the only one who wishes the library had shopping carts to push around all of the books I want to check out? Books are heavy!
When I was child, I enjoyed writing mostly poems. I still have poems I wrote when I was 12 years old. Please don’t ask me to show them to you, though!
I briefly thought of becoming an author, but I never pursued the option because I thought becoming an author was comparable to me becoming a pro football player (needless to say, impossible). Many years later, after much encouragement (or should I say pressure?) from my sister, husband, and daughters, I finally decided to take on the challenge of creating books to publish. Thus began what I have been calling “my writing adventure”.
I have had a lot of fun learning as much as I can about writing, editing, and publishing. I am definitely still learning! Since beginning my writing adventure, I have published Jobs of a Preschooler and Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles. I have also become a network chair for SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). I have many more ideas for children’s books, so I hope to continue improving my craft of writing and publish more books in the future.
I also enjoy writing about parenting, homeschooling, ways to save money, and simple crafts/projects to do at home. My writings have been published (or are forthcoming) in The Practical Homeschooling magazine, in The Old Schoolhouse magazine, on Money Saving Mom, on A Fine Parent, and on Hands On As We Grow, where I am currently a monthly contributor. I hope to continue creating an assortment of work for others to enjoy (and possibly learn from).
I love taking pictures, but I am not very comfortable having my picture taken. I would definitely prefer to be the one behind the camera (or phone) taking pictures, but below is a picture of me in front of a camera.
Speaking of cameras, I had the pleasure of presenting my book Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles live on the news. I was completely out of my comfort zone, but it was an amazing experience for me and my family (who got to watch the interview filmed live). My writing journey has also given me the opportunity to celebrate National Pickle Day and do library presentations, library story times, and a Barnes & Noble story time. It’s all been a lot of fun!
I’ve rambled on long enough! Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thank you for visiting. May you have a wonderful day.
