A busy mother of three, Alexis York Lumbard is the author of The Conference of the Birds, her first published children’s book. She already has two other children’s books scheduled for publication. Having noticed a lamentable absence of high quality books for the earliest of readers, she began writing her own stories since becoming a mother in 2005. With a B.A. in Religious Studies from George Washington University, it is her sincere hope to bring the wisdom and beauty of the world’s religions to the eager and gifted minds of young children. Alexis, her husband, and three children live in Massachusetts.
Her recent project and book is called”Meow, Meow, Maulana”: The Story of Muhammad and is a children’s book based completely on Quran and Hadith.
