Marcia Mouron Author

Marcia grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and graduated college in Elementary Education. She has always loved relating to young children, especially seeing their world written on their faces. Being a timid young child herself, she was only too aware of how much fun you miss out on by being worried about not being able to do things or to do them well.

She has built her adult life around the philosophy of I CAN. One of the main points of the book is for children to understand, "I'm an I CAN…cuz I TRY"! and during the course of her life she has found it important to not fear for others to see her TRY an extraordinary range of creative and constructive activities: Art, exhibiting both collage and acrylic paintings; Ballroom dancing, and entered a competition; Sculpture; Scuba diving; Bee-keeping; Creating a farm full of perennials, fruit trees, wildflowers and friends; Orchestrating retreat days at the farm for people wishing a getaway; Travelling abroad the first time alone; Keeping a blog, Nature Whispers, inspired by her love nature, which she records with photographs; Hiking; Camping; AND, accepting the personal challenge…to write a children's book

All of the I CAN's and I Can'ts in "YOU CAN I CAN" came about from a casual discussion. One day I spoke with a friend who was taking a challenge...pick something that you have wanted to do and always thought that you couldn't. Then give yourself three months of trying to get it done.

Thinking that idea seemed fun, I continued to play with it. The next morning over breakfast, it flashed through my mind, "Well, if I were to choose, I always wanted to write a children's book." What do you think the next words that flashed into my mind were?..."but I Can't do that." That morning the I Can'ts and I CAN's were born. It has been so much fun. At each step along the way another member of the I CAN Team was added. These dear people have encouraged and supported me offering their time and talent. They helped turn this I Can't of a book into an I CAN. Ok, I admit, it did take longer than three months!
