Welcome!! I’m so glad you found your way to this page. I decided to start The Nightingale Tales as a place where I can share my stories, poems, and ideas in an open, and simple format. I am a critical care nurse by day, and I have a site that is devoted to more adult themed, and nurse oriented tales (nightingale chronicles), but here I would like to focus on writing for children. As you can see I use the word Nightingale in each website, I honor both Florence Nightingale (the founder of modern day nursing), and the beautiful bird known for its melodic songs, and inspiring tales . I enjoy making up stories, playing with themes, and seeing what I can create. There is so much inspiration out there for children’s writing. I have found many great websites along the way that inspire writing for children, and honing in on the craft of writing which I will share throughout this blog, and please feel free to share any treasures you may have stumbled upon. Once again welcome to The Nightingale Tales, I hope you enjoy your time here.
