Hello and welcome to Future Homschool Authors! Let us start by introducing ourselfs!

Ysa our contest judge and writing advice manger.
 Hi, and welcome to our blog! I'm Ysa Rivas, the eldest of 7 kids, a highschool student, a bookworm, and a writer all through. I'm 15 years old right now, and I'm in 10th grade. I live, study, and write in the state of California. A few words my friends like to use when describing me are 'enthusiastic', 'crazy', 'sweet', and 'encouraging'. (Personally, I think "crazy" and "enthusiastic" fit the best.) My favorite subject in school is probably English, though Science, History, and Art are also important to me. When I'm not reading, blogging, writing, or hanging out with friends, I like to play piano, sing, knit, crochet, bead, and do other crafty things like that. 
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that our blog blesses you in some way! 

Lisbeth, Our reviewer
 I am 15 and live with my super mom and two little sisters, plus three babysitting kids. I have been home-schooled all my life, minus a two month period in a family catastrophe. I enjoy homeschooling and the freedoms and responsibilities it brings. I love to cook, plan, read, write, take pictures and teach! Sadly my parents are divorced. God through our small church of about 25 families fully provides for my family. I am constantly in awe of his provision and grace. I am so grateful for the family God has given me. He is the completion to my family.  He cares for the widow, is the Father to us fatherless and our ultimate Savior.
        As I stated above, I love reading good books and I love writing too! Therefore the reviewer job on future homeschool authors is super fun for me. And it helps give me a deadline for getting the reading and writing done! I hope my writing will be encouraging and helpful to any readers of future homeschool authors!

Mikayla, our administrator and contest judge

Hello! I’m so glad you were able to join us today! My name is Mikayla, I’m 14 and I live in the gorgeous state of Texas with my parents and my five awesome siblings. I spend my days taking photos, doing school, writing in one of my many books, drawing pictures, sewing, snuggling people, spending time with friends and family and blogging over at thebubblegumballerina. I started writing books when I was eight and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m an avid dreamer, I enjoy impossible possibilities. I hope you are blessed by our little corner of the world, I know working with these beautiful girls has blessed me.

So glad you could stop by and meet us! I hope we'll be seeing a lot of you in the future!
