Writing books for better good

Christine Logan writes with one goal in mind to encourage and support people

Christine Logan will be selling her books at the farmer's market in Maple Ridge Aug. 31.

Christine Logan writes with one goal in mind to encourage and support people.

The poet self-publishes her books in order to donate proceeds to organizations such as  the food bank, The Salvation Army Caring Place and Project Wellness.

Logan is inspired by the people she meets and the events that happen in her life.

Logan’s latest book is a 10 page children’s tome about a little black bear learning how to fend for himself with the help of the reader. She hopes to connect people through poetry and a child-like imagination.

The title Because You Care for Beany Bear is inspired by her first grandson whose nickname is Baby Bean.

“I hope people see how easy it is, that when they read to their children, allowing them time to be a part of the character’s story and making them aware of how easy it is to care for others,” she says.

Her books are available as e-books by emailing  tinemusic3@hotmail.com or via her website cloganinsideinspiration.com. She will be selling them at the farmer’s market Aug. 31.
