Anna Floit, Wordsmith
Anna Floit grew up among the cornfields and maple trees of the Midwest. Her small-town, Americana upbringing was the perfect setting for a little girl with long braids who loved stories, and she became a character in every book she read -- from Laura Ingalls Wilder's popular "Little House on the Prairie" series to Harper Lee's classic "To Kill a Mockingbird." She found her favorite tales were always set in the South, and an endearment for the area led her to make her home in Nashville, Tennessee.
Anna's lifelong fascination with stories and wordsmithing, along with her experience as a certified language arts teacher, inspired her to establish The Peacock Quill, a place of storyliving and storytelling for herself and for others. Because while creativity combined with life experiences are like watercolors to a canvas, every radiant masterpiece must first sustain refinement and polishing. And that's what Anna does as editor at The Peacock Quill. She makes your work shine!
I like good strong words that mean something. L. M. Alcott
