Consugar said interacting with people is a huge part of life, so it is essential that children learn how to respectfully treat others.
Halo Publisher ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) Lisa Umina said Swanee Day offers a way for children to learn courtesy, an important part of humanity. “Beth Consugar has written a sweet story that teaches a valuable lesson,” Umina said.
A career Certified Public Accountant in Pennsylvania, Consugar participates in an online forum for writers. The group issued a challenge to write a short story that teaches a lesson, and Swanee Day was born.
The author grew up in the coal regions of Pennsylvania and is the oldest of four children. She still lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Bill. Watching their school-age daughter read and listen to books inspired Consugar to write. She completed a course with the Institute of Children’s Literature. In addition to reading and writing, the author loves spending time with her family, cross-stitch and hiking.
Consugar earned her accounting degree at Pennsylvania State University. She is a longtime member of the American Business Woman’s Association and serves as vice president of her local chapter and chairperson of several committees.
