Thank you for visiting my Web site. I’m Beverly Stowe McClure, reader, writer, dreamer, and former teacher. Most times, you’ll find me at my computer writing words that young 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.
Enjoy your stay.
December will soon be over. I hope 2016 has been a good year for you and 2017 will bring you joy and happiness and your heart’s desire. I’ll be doing pretty much the same things I did in 1026: write. Several new ideas are floating around in my head for new stories. Then there are the three stories I’ve been working on for the past several months. Should keep me busy.
My latest news is my first audio book is now out. Audio books are new for me, but I’m beginning to really like them, especially since my vision is getting worse and worse. Here are the links if you enjoy audio books too.
Some really nice reviews are coming in. Here are a few snippets.
Under a Purple Moon is a book about friendship, and in particular, about one young girl who comes to accept her own self-worth. Author Beverly Stowe McClure has done a splendid job depicting the wide and varied range of emotions experienced by Eden and her friends. Under a Purple Moon is a book which young readers will find to be very relatable.

McClure’s story makes you feel for each of these kids, and you pull for them as they struggle to make their lives whole. Many teen readers will connect with these characters and how they create a family for themselves. C. Lee McKenzie
This is an exceptionally well-written book, filled with painful truths about growing up, but also the joys of young love, anticipation, and the excitement of conquering new challenges. I loved the writing style, enjoyed the deep characterizations, and felt the ending was believable and satisfying. The author did a great job, and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. Highly recommended! Laura
