Vandalia native Janet Elliott has recently written and published her first children’s book.
Elliott was born and reared in Vandalia, graduating from Vandalia Community High School in 1983.
She attended college in Dover, Del., earning a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She taught elementary school in Dover and also in Troy, Mich. In 1996, she moved to Kalispell, Mont., where she currently resides. She works full-time as a graphic artist and full-time for her church, Landmark Worship Center, as worship leader.
The children’s book series is entitled Bailey’s Tree House Adventures. “The Talent Show,” the first book in the series, is a story of Bailey and her class talent show. Confused and worried because she doesn’t think she has a talent, Bailey suddenly finds herself swept away from her worries on a Western adventure that reveals far more than she could have expected.
Elliott weaves spiritual and moral lessons through the fabric of the story in such a way that young readers will be caught up in the plot line, but will be strengthened in Biblical truths as well.
Bailey’s Tree House Adventures is a series aimed at an 8-12-year-old audience. The story is filled with adventure that kids will find entertaining.
Books are available locally at Word, Wicks and Wood bookstore or can be ordered on-line by contacting Elliott via email at email@example.com. They are also available online at Christianbook.com, Amazon, eBay and Barnes and Noble. Kindle versions are available at Amazon and iTunes.
