Deb Neuenschwander says her inability to find books on certain themes led her to write her own.

ARCHBOLD -- Pettisville resident Deb Neuenschwander is a published writer, with her book God Made the World released by Lighthouse Christian Publishers and available at Amazon.com.

Mrs. Neuenschwander, 56, is Christian education director at Archbold Evangelical Church. She wrote the book to read to preschoolers there, she said. The book follows the account of creation from the Bible.

She said she became a published writer almost by accident. "Sometimes I couldn't find enough books on the theme we were planning for a certain story hour. So I would write something simple that the children would understand, and then I was able to illustrate some of the books using a digital drawing program."

Several parents encouraged her to submit her manuscripts to the publisher, and two were quickly accepted. God Made the World is the first one to come out.
