Guest Bios:

Charlie Davenport:

Charlie was born in Munich Germany, starting painting at the age of 5 at the same she was designing clothes.Her mother always said if someone else can make it, she saw no reason that her children couldn’t do the same. So all six children are very resourceful and creative! She loves painting simply because it brings joy to others – she is very humble and blessed.
My paintings have sold in Frankfurt, Paris, California, and now Annapolis (wonderful community of beautiful people).

Lois Szymanski:

Lois says the books she read as a child changed her life and led her on the writer’s path. It was through childhood books like “Misty of Chincoteague” that she fell in love with the horses she writes about today.

​Szymanski is one of seven children, raised in Reisterstown, MD until she was a teen and her family moved 100 miles west to Sidling Hill Mountain in Warfordsburg, PA. Today, she resides in Union Mills, Maryland.

​Szymanski’s short stories have appeared in a long list of children’s magazines, including Highlights for Children, U*S*Kids Magazine, Turtle Magazine for Preschoolers and Hopscotch Magazine for Girls. Today, she works as a weekly correspondent for her local newspaper, The Carroll County Times, while continuing to write books.
