“Developing Talents,” Tambuli, Sept. 1993, 47
Interesting Tales of the Obvious, Teen Ghost, and the Life of a Twelve-year-old haven’t exactly made it on a best-seller list. In fact, the author has only one publication pending—in the school literary magazine.
But that hasn’t stopped would-be book writer Carolyn Jess, 14, from sending her manuscripts to “heaps and heaps of publishers.”
“It’s helped me to bring out my talents and to encourage other people to write,” Carolyn, a member of the Holywood Road Ward, Belfast Northern Ireland Stake, says. She also writes poetry and creates illustrations to accompany her work.
Her favorite story is set in Belfast and New York and includes some LDS characters.
