Thank you for visiting my Web site. I’m Beverly Stowe McClure, reader, writer, and former teacher. Most times, you’ll find me at my computer writing words that little voices whisper in my ears. Other times, I’m snapping pictures of wild life, clouds, and flowers, or playing with my cats. Also, check out my other blog where I post reviews and tours and all sorts of fun stuff. The Story of a Writer. Also, my forthcoming MG/Tween novel A FAMILY FOR LEONA, has a blog now and the girls would love to meet you at Leona Orphan Train Rider.
Enjoy your stay.
November has been a really exciting month. So much has happened. November 2nd was my birthday. The publisher of UNDER A PURPLE MOON sent me Unproofed Review copies of the book to send to prospective reviewers. I’ve sent eCopies out for review.
STAR OF THE TEAM won gold in the CLC Awards, and I LIVE IN A DOGHOUSE won silver.
And now, I’m excited to show you the cover of the soon-to-be released CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL: MY VERY GOOD, VERY BAD CAT book. My story about my cat Tiger is in it. I think the cover is adorable. What do you think?
Due out February 9, 2016.
It’s here. The gorgeous cover for my forthcoming YA Novel UNDER A PURPLE MOON. I’m over the moon excited.
No Love in the Garden of Eden
Eden Rose has learned to deal with her mother’s criticism that she can do nothing right. What she can’t deal with are the arguments between her parents. To escape their angry words, she finds refuge in an old abandoned house. She always returns home, hoping her mother will love her one day, even though Eden’s not sure what the word love means.
Three other teens with problems also hang out at the Old House. Meeting Murphy, Toby, and Josh changes Eden’s world, and she begins to have faith in herself. Perhaps she can do something right, after all.
Thanks to the boys, she begins to understand the meaning of love. But will it be enough to save her broken home life?

What’s a girl to do when her dreams of being the star of the team are in jeopardy?
Sometimes a boy just needs a place to get away,
like a doghouse.
When a girl that rides a horse and plays classical music gets together with a boy that rides a Harley and writes country ballads to rescue her father who has been kidnapped, they make an amazing discovery, one that can make man’s fondest dreams come true, or man’s worst nightmare.
