About (Alice Walters) – Allie’s Praise…

Thanks for visiting A Way with Words

Hey, there! My name is Alice Walters, a Southern gal who’s devoting her life to faith, family, and empowering kids. Five years ago I retired from public education. I was crazy enough to think my days of intense learning were over…wrong! 

Thanks to your visits, I’ve been learning about writing, and social media, and researching. Not that I didn’t know anything before, but writing for you really motivated me to up my game. That’s a good thing since I’m in the final stages of getting my second manuscript, Jubilee and the Stinky Fish, ready for the agents.

Recently, I retired from a small faith-based school. And guess what? I’m looking forward to learning even more about the tools of writing. Thank you for choosing to continue the journey with me. I hope you will find encouragement and inspiration, as much or more than you encouraged and inspired me.

Let’s get connected!
