Meet new authors

Meet Fleurie Lecercq of Snow Flower Books

We are excited to be working with children’s author, Fleurie Lecercq, founder of Snow Flower Books.

She grew up in the village of Yaounde, Cameroon in Africa. Her first book, Snow Flower and the Panther, was a way to showcase her African culture through the eyes of a young girl living day to day with pride in her heritage and community. Fleurie’s stories explore what it means to grow up with a true village mentality: understanding the value of togetherness, kindness, and sharing your purpose with those around you.

Snow Flower Books envisions a future of self-expression, unconditional love, and balance between people and the planet. Join us on our mission to empower children of all backgrounds to discover their inner-light and share it with the world in order to make it a more kind and beautiful place. And remember: it takes a village; so spread the love.

What we're working on

Meet Edward Giron & Gwen the Racehorse!

The velvet voice of Santa Barbara, Edward Giron is an actor, narrator, announcer, and now a Children’s book author!

Edward is well-known in the horse and polo communities, and his own horses inspired him to write the upcoming story of Gwen the Racehorse. In this charming children’s tale, we meet Gwen, a fun-loving young horse who loves to run, but hates to race!

With some amazing art from one of Polyverse’s artists, Gwen is a work in progress, but is ramping up to be a big hit!
