Author turns passion for helping others into children’s books

Rockford, Iowa -A northeast Iowa author is combining area landmarks and adventures to spark connections with her readers.

Jen Schmitt, author of Tawanda’s Tales, says there’s a twist because it’s a children’s book but can spark memories from adults.


The book, which is available on Amazon, is the first of three Schmitt plans to publish for children.


Schmitt is on tour throughout Northeast Iowa.  One of her stops will be on Saturday from 10-12 at R&R Townmart in Rudd.

The Rockford native says she wants to help people reach their full potential.


Schmitt also writes a blog using real life connections, which is where her book ideas have come from.
