“My short time on that farm was like my very own magic kingdom. Cherry and apple trees, ponds, fields of wildflowers, ladybugs, fireflies, teeny-tiny frogs, critters, starry nights…how can I not write about that?”

The series also inspires children everywhere to love themselves and be compassionate toward others. 

She began writing music, poetry, and short stories as young as eight, and has since penned numerous books, short stories, and poetry anthologies that have become popular around the globe.There was always some silly limerick, jingle, or budding tale bouncing around my brain, begging to be written down.”
