About Author Kathleen J. Shields

Kathleen J. Shields is an award winning author, having won first place for Best Educational Children’s Series from the Texas Association of Authors in 2015, and the Purple Dragonfly Award in 2017 for the Hamilton Troll Cookbook.

She has 27 published books ranging from illustrated children’s books, tween chapter books, young adult and adult, as well as Christian Fiction.

She is currently working on the third book of The Painting Trilogy, her memoirs, along with a fun factual story called Turtle Diaries.  Her hope is to teach young readers more interesting tidbits about various turtle species through the first person perspective of a tortoise.

During the week, she runs her own businesses (plural); a website and graphic design company, and a publishing house where she assists new authors in making their dreams come to reality.

Over the weekends, you can usually find her setup at a market day, craft show, church bizarre or any place that will let her setup a table to promote and sell her books, throughout the Texas Hill Country.

She also thoroughly enjoys visiting schools and libraries, reading to young children and inspiring 3rd through 5th graders into using their imaginations to embellish their creative writing skills.

I love using my imagination.

I love being creative.

I love who I am.

About author Kathleen J. Shields

I love children and I love selling books!

I’ve got the best job in the world because I get to do what I love. 

Not only do I enjoy writing stories, I enjoy creating the covers for those books.

I’m a graphics designer (self-taught) and that, with website development, is my day job.

I run Kathleen’s Graphics, a website and graphic design company.

Creating custom logos for people, designing websites, flyers and advertisements and most especially assisting in author services.

Helping to aspire authors by creating an eye-catching book cover.

I help them by designing their website. I create business cards, bookmarks, videos, banners, and anything else they may need.

I also run the Erin Go Bragh Publishing company.

Started as a need to properly publish my children’s books, this company has quickly grown, on it’s own, with the successful addition of multiple other authors. 

EGB Publishing prefers to publish children’s books but any educational books fit the profile.

We’ve even published a nearly 1200 page Vietnamese to English Dictionary – so that is completely educational!

Author Kathleen J. Shields is fast at work releasing fun and exciting books of all genres, for all ages and plans to keep putting out books and fun stories as long as God allows. While running a website and graphic design business and every task as her own publishing company, she keeps up with weekly blog posts and writing new adventures

Kathleen never tires of finding ways to be creative.  She enjoys learning new things, teaching herself new programs and writing about anything she can dream of. Being self-taught, she does it all on her own; following the model, if you want it done right…
