Kelda Laing Poynot

Welcome to my author page! My goal as an author is to encourage and entertain my readers. In 2011, I began writing nonfiction, but my fictional writing started in 2016 while facilitating a novel-writing class with my students. The voices wouldn't stop talking! Vivid characters and their dialogue exploded, and writing their stories was my only relief. My psychiatrist friend assured me, "Kelda, you aren't crazy for hearing voices; you're a writer." That's all the confirmation I needed. I grew up a military kid, and after many more moves, my husband and I made our home in south Louisiana. Our community has been a fantastic place to raise our children and allow our lives to be deeply rooted. We have four children and all the adventures parenting offers. My passions for young people began early, and I have always had the opportunity to work with children of all ages, from the very young to the young at heart. My background is in elementary education with a masters in elementary counseling. Faith and education are genuinely my driving forces. We have homeschooled our children through graduation, and I have the privilege to influence other families and encourage their decisions to homeschool their children. For the past decade, I have worked weekly with students, tutoring a variety of subjects. I tutor a lot of math, literally hours and hours of algebra! Maybe writing is my brain's attempt to compensate and regain territory claimed by logic, fractions, and variables. I do tell "math world" stories to help explain complicated math rules and remind them not to break the rules. Through church, community involvement, and teaching, I am entrusted with mentoring the next generation. I may not have birthed them, but I claim them as my own. When I'm not writing, I listen to audiobooks and watch movies, so many movies! Audiobooks allow me to learn and experience words while my hands are busy. I've always sewn and done handwork. Knitting, quilting, and crochet are my current crafts of choice while playing great music in the background like a soundtrack. Writing is a compulsion that occurs amid the chaos of life and dogs and constant interruptions. Life is filled with opportunities to love. Be embraced!
