Meet the Author
Nicole Evans Haumesser
Ever since I was a young child, I loved to lose myself in stories. I started writing poetry at the age of 11, and in college, I wrote short scenes and monologues for my fellow acting students. Stage Theater was my passion, and I could get lost for hours in the play section of the local bookstore. I simply loved creating and imagining characters in various situations.
The idea of The One and Only Owen came to me after I learned a new fact about earthworms, but almost all my story ideas are rooted in real life or my life. Owen struggles with his self-esteem just as I have. In Owen’s ALMOST Overnight Adventure, he has wrestled with how to balance his own needs and wants with the rules and given social expectations of his family and friends. I wrote Genesis Goodwin is Always on the GO! while in yoga class, when I couldn’t turn my brain off and let go myself! It’s been so wonderful to be able to continue to learn, grow, and change each year and with each new story. Life is a continual process of change. It has been an amazing decade spent exploring and letting the stories find me.
Keep your eyes and ears out for these upcoming titles:
Owen’s ALMOST Overnight Adventure! – The musical journey of Owen continues as he grows and begins to challenge the rules of the garden. He wants the freedom he sees in other garden creatures such as Butterfly. He, along with his friends, take a grand adventure, that does not entirely go as planned. However, they do meet new friends and learn a valuable lesson about growing up!
