This month Kidlit Nation is shining the Indie Spotlight on author Silvia Acevedo. Join us on Wednesday, August 28th at 7pm CST to meet Silvia. Registration is required.
Silvia Acevedo is a journalist and novelist. In her 20 years in news, she’s interviewed presidential candidates, covered national and international stories, and given breaking news reports for CNN and local television and radio stations around the country. She even guest hosted a television morning talk show on Milwaukee’s NBC station. Silvia currently freelances at various news publications and performs voice-over work.
Reporting objective fact all those years enticed her to delve into her imagination in her off time, so Silvia also writes funny, adventurous mythology for teens on up. She deftly weaves vignettes of ancient myth into wholly new and laugh-out-loud stories of the modern age. Her books include her debut, GOD AWFUL LOSER, its sequel, GOD AWFUL THIEF, and the final book in the trilogy, GOD AWFUL REBEL.
Silvia speaks and teaches at many writers’ conferences and is on the leadership team of the Wisconsin chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators as their assistant regional advisor. She lives just outside Milwaukee with her husband, Jeff Miracola, who is an accomplished fantasy illustrator and children’s book artist.
