Bill & Mia Belew
Bill and Mia Belew are a father and daughter writing team. Bill served as a communications and intelligence officers in the US Navy. Following that experience he served as a tent-making missionary in Japan for nearly 20 years. In his 3rd career he lived in Silicon Valley where he served companies wanting to build their online brands. In his retirement years he is co-authoring a fictional series with his daughter. He is also writing the non-fiction series - Dad, Tell Me a Story and Revelation. Mia is a 9th grader in the heartland of a start-up culture. She loves to read, chapter books about fantasy, adventure, Greek & Roman mythology. She can read non-stop for hours and hours. Frustrated by a lack of books for preteens that challenge the young reader with new vocabulary without diving into inappropriate content, Bill and Mia teamed up to write their own books. They started when Mia was 11-years old. They now have 4 books in their series, GrowingUpAimi, published and two more on the way. The books focus on true-to-life adventures and challenges of preteens and tweens. No time warps, mythical characters or romance. Their books can be read alone, in a reader group or as a devotional guide with parent or grandparent and child reading together and discussing points brought up in each chapter - have you ever felt betrayed, do you have questions you want to ask God ... Or, readers can just dive in and enjoy. Bill's non-fiction series are reflections on his life and the lessons learned about prayer, forgiveness, hate, selfishness and more.
