AURORA – Barabara Belford grew up wanting being a writer.
“Always,” Belford said. “I love books and I love stories. I love being immersed in a world that’s not your own, being in that dream while you’re reading the book.”
Through the years she has been published in journals and newsletters, but today she added fiction author to her resume. “Canned and Crushed”, Belford’s first published book, was released by Sky Pony Press on Tuesday, March 3.
Belford has been teaching at Allen Elementary School for 25 years. She is the school’s reading interventionist, meeting with small groups of students throughout the day, coaching them on reading skills. Through the years, she found that her students didn’t have enough books that resonated with their lives.
