Who is Moira Gardener?
Wondering who I am? Personally, a wife, mother, Gramma and Teddy Bear collector. I view the world from a Christian perspective and have a passion for faith, family, children’s literature, and the written word. A native Calgarian I now reside on Southern Vancouver Island, here in Canada.
My background? Health care – specifically, Dentistry, Public Health, and Geriatrics. I ended the role of employee to enter the entrepreneurial scene years ago, first as a private caregiver, then a writer. I now see myself as a writer/blogger helping women and their families gain a deeper connection with God and family through the written word. I view writing as both a creative act and a utilitarian tool. It all depends on the problem you are trying to solve for your readers.
My writing? I’ve kept a journal, been to the University of Victoria creative writing department, the School of Children’s literature at Write Storybooks for Children, published magazine articles for Seaside Magazine, and Life As A Human, created a children’s chapter book, and learned the formulaic writing of content marketing as a creative act. This last one was acquired at the Smart Blogger and Sticky Blogging Campus’s. I write from a knowledge base of faith, family life, care giving, and the craft of writing creatively and functionally. My current memberships are with the Word Guild, FBCW, and SCBWI.
