Author Biography

Born the younger of two siblings, I found a love for writing poetry in junior high school. I grew fond of the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, not for the darkness that his writings foretold, but for the use of his play of words and creative descriptions.

Having a strong Christian foundation, I participated in various church organizations on local, state, and national levels.

At the age of 19, I married Minister (now Ordained Elder and Artist) William Fredrick Withers, II and together we are the parents of sons, Samuel-Hakeem and William Withers.

Becoming a licensed preacher of the Gospel in 2002, I have accompanied my husband in assisting church ministries in ministerial leadership, praise and worship, and church administration.

For the past 15 years, I have worked as a legal assistant where I daily interact with court officials, law enforcement, and various other professionals. This experience has presented me with many opportunities to witness and exemplify God’s love and compassion to those feeling discouraged and fearful.

Utilizing the gift of writing and ministry and through the publications of Tate Publishing, I have am able to spread the joy and knowledge of Christian views while engaging the imagination, development, and inspirations of families worldwide. Since the release of my first children’s book (February 18, 2014), I have been featured on Blog Internet and Radio Shows, been guest speakers of local youth organizations, received the Amazon seal of one of best children’s books for 2014 and become a part of Amazon Author Central and Goodreads.

I welcome you to journey with me…

Adventures of My Brother's Keeper: Let Our Ball Go by Wendy Marie Withers is the delightful story of two brothers, Samuel-Hakeem and William. Both of them do everything together and Samuel, being a year older, likes to teach William new things. One day while playing, they realize their red ball has rolled behind Simba's doghouse. Though Simba is a well-trained Labrador, the boys are still scared of him. Their father puts them to bed daily by reading Bible bedtime stories aloud and he tells them that they can find the answer to their fear through the story he is going to read them that night. The kids get an answer through the story but will they also get their ball back from Simba?

I found the story has a beautiful concept and message for kids. The book tells young readers how to overcome fear and handle problems in life easily. The bedtime story of Aaron and Moses teaches them to overcome their fear and get the ball back from Simba. The story comes alive with the beautiful illustrations and readers can relate well to the characters, the parents of Samuel and William, and Simba the cute little dog through these pictures. The book is perfect as a bedtime storybook, and grandparents and parents can add them to their personal collection to read out to their grand-kids and kids. It is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and libraries. Children will relate well to the story of Samuel and William.
