Author Helps Immerse Readers in Adventures


Colleen Madonna Flood Williams is one of several authors in Windstorm Creative’s Orchard Academy Press' My Adventure Series. Colleen’s titles include; My Adventure to the Arctic, My Adventure to the Fair, My Adventure to the Forest Clubhouse, My Adventure to the Harbor, My Adventure to the Playground, My Adventure to the Science Center, and My Adventure to the Secret Cave. These books allow children to immerse themselves in the adventures by adding written details, as well as visual information to the stories. She has also written a holiday adventure series for Windstorm that is in production at this time and is writing for their time travel adventure series and regional adventure series.

Colleen Madonna Flood Williams explains, “These are books that children and their parents will treasure for many years to come. The child gets to put his/her name on the front cover and assume the role of author/illustrator for each of these titles. The child is taken on a guided adventure, and yet he/she gets to determine many of the feelings and sensory elements that he/she experiences along the way. Reading, writing, and illustrating have never been so much fun!”

Flood Williams is the author of more than a dozen children’s books. She has written for Chelsea House and Mason Crest, as well as Windstorm Creative’s Orchard Academy Press. She has a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and is a full time freelance writer, wife, mother, and Homer Bay Club Gym Member. She is available for classroom visits and may be reached at P.O. Box 3492, Homer, Alaska 99603.

A message from Colleen:

Hi, there!


My name is Colleen Madonna Flood Williams. I am a published children’s author from right outside of Homer, Alaska. I am promoting a new series of books that I am working on for young children. These books are part of the Orchard Academy My Adventure Series. My first two books in this series are My Adventure to the Fair and My Adventure to the Forest Clubhouse. Next year, a greater number of my titles will be available, including a series on holidays, a series on the regions of America, some time travel adventures, and some animal adventures. Two upcoming titles that may interest Alaskans especially are My Adventure to the Arctic and My Adventure to the Harbor.

Reading, writing, and illustrating has never been so much fun! These are books that children and their parents will treasure for many years to come. The child gets to put his/her name on the front cover and assume the role of author/illustrator for each of these titles. The child is taken on a guided adventure, and yet he/she gets to determine many of the feelings and sensory elements that he/she experiences along the way.

You can see/order my titles at http://www.windstormcreative.com/academy/2293X.htm


If you are a group or a bookstore or other type of book distributor go here http://www.windstormcreative.com/orders/index.htm to order my books at a discount.

(You can also see my other titles for older students by searching my name at amazon.com.)

For workshop situations, I prefer working with children in first grade, second grade, third grade, and with appropriate age/grade level special education students up for the challenge of writing/illustrating their own books. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Art and have some personal experience background with special education children. If you wish to schedule a writer’s workshop for children, I only ask that students/customers be willing to each purchase one book, so that we can work on it during my visit. If you are across the water from Homer or further away than Anchorage, I would also ask for my transportation to and from Homer or Anchorage to be paid for by your organization and for lodging to be provided for me. If you are on the Alaskan road system and I can drive to your location, then transportation expenses will be minimal.

I will first talk to the students, then guide them through the process of writing their own books. If time allows, I will also guide them through illustrating the text, as well. If time does not allow, the students may illustrate their books on their own time or with their classroom teachers or parents.

If you contact me and want to arrange a regular author visit, book signing, or writer’s workshop, I will have my publisher contact you and set up an author visit date. I will also contact you so that I can arrange to have enough books with me for all of your students should you arrange for a workshop. If I bring books, I will charge $6.00 a piece for them. If you order them, you can get them for about $5.00 a piece. You may charge an additional fee to benefit your organization for the workshop.

At the end of the visit, your students/customers will each receive a certificate signed by me that announces their emergence as an up and coming author/illustrator.



I hope to hear from you soon. If not, keep reading, writing, creating, illustrating, and learning!



Interested in a media kit to review my work? Want to interview me? Would you like to carry or purchase my books? Want to schedule an event? Contact me at colleen.williams@acsalaska.net with your mailing address and contact info.



Bear in mind that we can always arrange a cyber visit/phone visit to your school, too!



Thanks for your time,

Colleen Madonna Flood Williams
