Carmen Saptouw

Biography

As a young child of only 8 years old, I was inspired to write children’s stories. Following my childhood years, I got so involved with being a teenager that I completely forgot about my passion for writing. Only in 2011, the year I turned 29, was my passion reawakened from its deep slumber when my dad found the stories I had written as a child. So more than 20 years later I rewrote the stories with the aim to preserve it, but as I typed, the stories evolved and new ideas were sparked.
I am married and a mother of a beautiful baby girl. I completed my tertiary education in Human Resources Management and worked in the industry for 9 years. After the birth of my baby in 2014, I decided to stay at home with her because this not only allowed me to share precious moments with her, but also gave me the opportunity to focus on my writing.
I aspire to share my stories with children around the world, and for each story to have a sound moral lesson. Visit my site, sign up and follow my blog as I explore how parent and child can apply the life lessons contained in my stories.
