Once upon a time…
Dancers at heart, writers in the wings, we are Doris Greenberg and Pandre’ Shandley, two former dance teachers with combined classroom expertise of over 40 years. Together, we’ve choreographed, taught, and attended numerous conventions and competitions. Having studied and chaperoned across the United States from Chicago to Las Vegas, New York to Disney World, we’ve collected a wealth of wonderful dance-filled memories and experiences.
Along the way, students planted the seed, “What’s a good dance book to read?” Their curiosity inspired our secret passion for writing and a second career was born. Set in a haunted dance studio, our debut novel, The Legend of L’Esprit, proudly earned a National Indie Excellence Award for Young Adult Fiction. Aside from book signings and promotional work, we’ve also established a writer’s workshop to encourage first-time authors to better navigate the publishing world and greatly enjoy speaking to middle school students touting the importance of strong language arts skills.
Our partnership has been a remarkable journey of faith and sheer tenacity. We’ve recently completed crafting the second in our Dance Legacy Series, coming soon…Chasing the Spotlight. We hope our books inspire our readers to always be dancers at heart. Happy reading!
Both The Legend of L’Esprit (second edition) and Chasing the Spotlight can be preordered today for their upcoming release this October through http://Ten16press.com\shop
With Love from Two Writers, Miss Doris and Miss Pandy
