Selma P. Verde

Verde, Selma.jpg
Selma P. Verde has been a creative writer since she was a kid, starting with silly plays and creative storytelling. It was her dream as a teenager to write and publish a novel. As an adult, watching the kids around her growing up and learning life’s lessons inspired her to write about some of the challenges teenagers face. Those are the themes she focuses on in her coming of age novels for the teen and young adult audiences.
Selma lives in Minnesota with the man in her life, Jim, his two sons Max and Mitch, and their cat Sophie.
