Shea McIntosh Ford is the author of Harp Lessons and The Stone of Kings. She lives in Florida with her loving husband of fourteen years and two boys, ages eight and seven. Growing up she lived under the delusion that prejudice and bigotry were no longer being taught to children. Oh, how much she has learned. After feeling powerless as a first year teacher when one student adamantly said that Americans should send ALL Mexican’s back to Mexico, Shea has found her voice through her writing. While she knows that bigotry probably won’t be eradicated altogether, at least she’s doing her part to help decrease it.

  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving words of encouragement! I’m sure my writing enthusiasm will pick up soon and I’ll be sprinting away! Have a good NaNoWriMo! 😀

  2. Did you comment on Skagit Leeks “What Single Word Defines You”? I’m not familiar with you but see you play the harp. I’m so envious! I just got one and too busy to even begin to learn.

    1. I don’t remember if I did or not. Doesn’t mean that I didn’t. lol Gluten tends to wreak havoc on my memory.

      As for learning harp, it is totally worth the effort. My best advice is to get Silvia Woods’ “Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp”. Get the companion DVD too. If you don’t know how to read music, I’m only assuming that part is good. I skipped over it because I already knew how to read it. But for learning technique, it’s awesome. 😀 I never had any formal training, until I took a private lesson with Sylvia herself when she did a workshop in Orlando. If you practice enough, getting a gig is pretty easy, because not a lot of people play harp, but everyone loves it. 😀

  3. I somehow seem to have never read your “About” page until now. I love your goal of writing!! We can only do our part, but I truly admire you for all your hard work and sacrifice. Keep writing and keep bringing change!
