Irving, TX – September 8, 2015 – A feature story about Rebecca Crownover was recently seen on Yahoo! Finance, as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, The Boston Globe, South Florida Business Journal, Los Angeles Daily News and MarketWatch, among many others.
Published in 2013, the first book in the series (titled Texas Farm Girl) found the protagonist – a young character based on Crownover’s childhood – learning from her PawPaw the hard work that goes into farming. She comes to understand how devastating it can be when a big storm comes through and rips it apart. Crownover imparts key life lessons as the young girl learns how to focus on the positive even under dire circumstances.
Quickly creating a regional and then growing national sensation, Texas Farm Girl was a Christian Literary Awards nominee in the Children’s Book category. Rebecca was named 2014 Mascot Books Author of the Year, and won the coveted 2014 “Moving America Forward” Award, presented by Retired Rear Admiral Kevin F. Delaney, for being an innovative entrepreneur. This was presented to the author on William Shatner’s “Moving America Forward,” a national TV series that celebrates the achievements and contributions of businesses and entrepreneurs across the U.S.
Though it was published by a secular publisher, it was a 2013 award-winning finalist in the USA Best Books Awards in the Children’s Religious Category and a 2013 Christian Literary Award winner (Henri Award and Reader’s Choice Award) in the Children’s Book category.
As a partner in a thriving farm organization and via her books and other entrepreneurial efforts connected to Texas Farm Girl, Rebecca – who has a business degree from Texas Tech University and launched her professional life as a global technology consultant - aims to paint a positive picture of farming in an era where the media has often cast skepticism and negativity on the industry.
“My mission as a farmer and the creator of Texas Farm Girl is to show a strong image of farming while educating, entertaining and inspiring children”, she says. “Both of these endeavors engage my passion for business and entrepreneurship, and I’m thrilled by all of the opportunities to give back and bring joy and hope to people.”
