Author Layne Case is from Barrington, NH. “Charlie”, her first children's book, was written during the early 1970’s while working towards her Bachelors Degree at the University of New Hampshire. She had also been writing poetry since 1983 and planned to publish them one day. In 2007, AMITY Publications was establishd and both books were published. Thus began the journey as an author, teacher and publisher.
Two years later, "Charlie and His New Friend" was released, followed by "Charlie and His Neighbor" (2011), "Charlie and The School Bully" (2012) and "Charlie and His Lost Friend" (2015). Layne developed a writing program for children, inspiring them to "celebrate our differences" and understand the importance of reading and writing. It wasn't long before some of these young "AITs" (Authors in Training) became published authors as well. (See More Books by Other Authors)
Layne's literacy program “Read Up! Write On! Literacy Rules!” offers private and small group writing classes as well as programs for libraries, schools, and child care centers. Years of teaching in many different environments (traditional classroom, fitness club, County jail) were the catalyst for these classes.
In addition to children's books, Layne has published “Inspirations From My Family and Friends”. This collection of poetry is the "inspiration" for the Bible study “Reading the Bible Through Poetry”
