An inside look at I Love Me by LaRonda Gardner Middlemiss
About the Author
LaRonda Gardner Middlemiss is a picture book author who formerly worked as an engineer in corporate America. Her son’s love of story time, which for him meant any time, immersed her in the wonderful world of picture books. Enjoying books with various themes and approaches to storytelling, from the quirky to the quiet, eventually inspired her to begin writing stories of her own. When not busy battling wits with her husband or having fun with her son, she enjoys listening to children’s book themed podcasts, gaining insight from NPR, and watching movies. She also likes creating art and hopes to someday illustrate her own books. LaRonda writes books to entertain, enlighten, and empower children across the globe. She resides in Kernersville, North Carolina.
