I’m Stephanie Workman, And This Is My Dharma


Stephanie Workman first discovered her passion for writing at age fifteen, when her high school English teacher submitted one of her poems to the 21st Century Poetry Journal—and it was published! Stephanie went on to earn her BFA in Writing, Literature and Publishing at Emerson College and then interned at MTV Films, where she wrote script coverage. 

Kirkus Review hailed her first picture book, Lucy’s Amazing Friend, which was inspired by her husband’s high school friendship with a classmate living with autism, as “sympathetic and triumphant.”

She is currently working on the second installment in the Amazing Friends series, Not So Truthful Timmy, about a boy who does not know the difference between make-believe and lying, as well as on her first novel.

She’s also contributed articles to websites such as Tiny Buddha and Having Time. 

Your Personal or Professional Goals:

My personal and professional goals are one in the same.

I want to help children as much as I possibly can, doing what I love, which is writing.

Growing up there weren’t a lot of children’s books out there, which dealt with the issues I was going through at the time.

I’ve created a children’s book series that is both fun to read and relatable. It’s comforting for a child to know he or she is not the only one experiencing a specific issue.

Your offering to the world:

I find peace not only in writing but also when I read.

I’ve been fortunate enough my whole life to be surrounded by books and I want this for other children as well.

I became an active member of the Coalition of Children’s Book Authors, which donates books to needy children in Africa.

Who/What Inspires You:

Children inspire me. Spending time with them sparks an innocence and creativity inside me sometimes I fear I have lost. Being around them can also be very tranquil because they don’t stress out the way adults do. They also have this incredible ability to forgive and forget. I’m still working on that one.


Putting words to paper or reading is the only way I know how to find calm when I can feel life starting to spin out of control.

I want to encourage children to use these outlets as well.

They both are truly sustenance for the soul.
