Author Bio:

A native of Charlotte, NC, Bucleigh Newton Kernodle has always had a passion for creative writing. Inspired by her ninth-grade English teacher to spread her wings, sparked to push her limit at Elon University by her communications professors, and her editor at the Charlotte Business Journal showed her how to make words their very best selves, all culminated into a desire to write children's books. Her faith in God is where she finds her direction. She cherishes being a wife, mother, and daughter to her loving family and they have never stopped believing in her.
