We had the good fortune of connecting with Ebonie P. Fields and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ebonie P., what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
The thought process behind starting my own business was to create a legacy for my children, like the Berenstain Family. The Berenstain family created The Berenstain Bears, which has been a successful children’s literature franchise for over 60 years. Their legacy continues to thrive throughout the world. I am the author of award-winning books, Zenie and the Magical Hummingbirds and Zoey and the Magical Hummingbirds. I look forward to publishing several more books that children from all around the world can enjoy. As an accomplished author, I wanted a business selling a collection of my books, and an opportunity for those interested in developing their creative writing skills to receive consulting. I often come across people that tell me that they always wanted to write a book. At Ebby’s Book House LLC, I give people the necessary consulting, direction, tools, and encouragement to become successful writers.

What should our readers know about your business?
Ebby’s Book House LLC is a For Profit organization that provides online writing coaching and a collection of my books. As an author and writing consultant, I coach inspire, and motivate people of all ages to become great creative writers. I teach the importance of creatively allowing words to paint a vivid picture for readers, as well as educate clients on the beauty of the rhythm and flow of the written language. I help clients master the basic writing process and the key straits of writing; guaranteeing to bring out their creative writing spirit.

When I published my first book, Zenie and the Magical Hummingbirds, I received negativity from naysayers, and a lack of support from those around me. I overcame my challenges by letting go of negative energy that was weighing me down and preventing me from soaring to success. I focused on God’s word and the message that he wanted me to share with the world. Each of my books share a strong message about the importance of family, love, and friendship.

I am most proud of my perseverance to keep writing as well as my recent accomplishments as an author. I am now recognized as a writer of excellence in Children’s Literature. My first book, Zenie and the Magical Hummingbirds, recently won a 2021 Honorable Mention Award from the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards. My second book, Zoey and the Magical Hummingbirds, has won a Silver Recipient Award from the Mom’s Choice Awards, a Readers’ Favorite Five-Star Review, and a 2021 Honorable Mention from the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards.

The lessons I have learned through my career is that you must believe in yourself, love yourself, and take care of yourself. You will always come across obstacles and negativity, but if you confidently believe in yourself and your work your dreams will come true.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend came to visit me, I would take her to the best restaurants, parks, and malls in Arizona. First, we would start the week off by hiking Camelback Mountain. We would then enjoy walking and eating lunch in Old Town Scottsdale. For dinner, we would enjoy delicious Jamaican food and drinks at Ocean Blue Caribbean Restaurant in Chandler. One morning, we will enjoy breakfast at Brunch & Sip in Arcadia and later spend the day, shopping at the Scottsdale Fashion Square. A couple days out of her visit, we will road trip to Sedona, and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and hiking trails along the mountains. It will be a memorable visit of great food, shopping, and unforgettable outdoor activities.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I dedicate my shoutout to my two grandmothers and my children.

My two grandmothers, Louise Torrence and Patricia Bizune, were both the inspiration behind my books, Zenie and the Magical Hummingbirds and Zoey and the Magical Hummingbirds. Their love, beautiful spirits, and kindness are represented in my hummingbird characters throughout my children’s books.

My children, Dillon and Meriah Fields, also inspire me personally to continue to thrive in my business, and my career as a writer. They motivate me each day to be the best version of myself and to write stories with characters that children all around the world can relate to and enjoy.
