With Dr. Matt E. Jaremko, Beth co-wrote the creative non-fiction book, "Trauma Recovery: Sessions with Dr. Matt." She is a high school English teacher. Authenticity, calling out hypocrisy, and finding one's voice are frequent themes in Beth's work, and they are absolutely essential themes in her life, as well. Beth has a B.A. in English, Minor in Secondary Education, and an M.Ed. in Reading.Beth is in in-demand as an author-panelist, having presented/appeared at the Texas Library Association Annual Conference, the American Library Association's annual conference, YALSA, N.C.T.E./ALAN, and numerous YA book festivals. She's a member of The Author's Guild, SCBWI, Romance Writers of America, and the Texas Federation of Teachers.She loves doing school visits and meeting teens, teachers, and librarians!Beth lives in the woods of East Texas in a house on a slice of family acreage. The home was built by her family over one very hot humid summer, a task she wishes never to repeat again. This sanctuary-of-sorts is lined by pine trees, and the woods are inhabited by raccoons, possums, and feral cats. All of these creatures appear to consider Beth their cat-food-providing goddess. There is no place she would rather be.
"Find the Moon is one of those wonderful novels that compels readers to close the back cover, saying, 'That's me.' Beth Fehlbaum has written Find the Moon with unique authenticity. It is a story you will believe, and one that will stay with you. This novel is going to be around for a while!" Chris Crutcher, receipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award, the ALAN Award, and the NCTE National Intellectual Freedom Award. "Beth Fehlbaum vividly writes about teens in impossible situations. Her characters try their best to use every ounce of their strength to cope with unfair and neglectful circumstances. But Beth's writing goes further than the inner struggle of abused and forgotten children. The miracles forged from group involvement and support are realistically depicted in this and all the other Fehlbaum novels. Kylie in Find The Moon is this lost character until she finds and uses the always-there-if-you-look-for-it group support to cope with abuse and build meaning for a better and bigger future." Dr. Matt Jaremko, Co-author with Beth Fehlbaum ofTRAUMA RECOVERY: SESSIONS WITH DR. MATT "Equal parts grit and grace, Find the Moon is a harrowing, hopeful triumph! Once again, Beth Fehlbaum proves herself a rockstar truth-teller at the top of her game." Steven Parlato, Author of THE NAMESAKE and THE PRECIOUS DREADFUL
