More about lydia

Author, Entrepreneur, Media Producer, and Publisher

Lydia has a passion for working with children.  For over 30 years, she has worked with summer camps across the US producing videos for camps.   She has coached children in basketball and soccer programs through her church, and conducted creative writing workshops with schools and camps.

 

Lydia and her sister, C.J. Peterson, both award-winning authors, have formed their own publishing company, Texas Sisters Press, LLC.   “We have goals for our own books, but we also want to reach out to other authors who are looking for assistance with publishing books,” LM Mann said. 


Lydia hopes to inspire young readers to develop a passion for reading as she did as a child.  “It is extremely important to help children develop a love of reading.  Reading allows children not only to do better in school, but instills a love of learning, and supports their natural curiosity.  I still remember the magic moment when my dad was reading me the same book that he had to read me every night before bed, when I realized I was actually reading the words on my own,” she said.
