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.
