Millie Richmond - Children's Author​

​     Growing up in New England,  I enjoyed an abundance of history and the variety of seasons.​​  The winters finally got to me though and I headed south, eventually settling in central Florida.  ​​For many years I loved working with and for kids as classroom teacher and Reading Resource Specialist in elementary schools.  
​     Now retired, I spend a lot of time  swimming, writing, volunteering, writing, walking,  writing, "junkin" and, oh yes, writing.  

     Hildy, an upbeat, early chapter book,​ is a 2012 Winner in the Florida Writers Association Royal Palm Literary Awards.  
​It is an AR (Accelerated Reader) book with a Readability Level of 3.8.   ​Two picture books followed: 
Daddy's Gone and May I Have A Dog?  
A yet-to-be-published picture book, Did You Do Your Homework Last NIght?  earned a 2013 Royal Palm Literary Award.



​​ All three books are available at and

Thank you for visiting!

What a wonderful visit I had at Seminole Elementary School in Okeechobee, Florida!  The students had read my book Hildy and my visit was their culminating activity.   
​I was impressed with these super listeners and the thoughtful questions they asked after the presentation.
