Rhonda Raccoon's strange behavior -pulling out her hair, counting compulsively, washing her paws repeatedly - is making her sad and confused. With the help of wise Dr. Owl, Rhonda learns that her behavior is caused by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which makes some of her brain cells misfire. Rhonda comes to understand that the shame she feels is unnecessary as Dr. Owl coaches her to remember, It's not me, it s the OCD! Dr. Owl helps his raccoon friend see that there is nothing wrong with her and educates her about the ways she can manage her OCD.

Jan Evans has been writing since age eight, when her first limerick was printed in a school paper. In eighth grade she wrote a story, which she later turned into a play her class produced. Repetitive Rhonda is based on Jan's own life and trials with OCD. Through Brighter Way Books, she hopes to help children understand that mental disorders have physical causes that are not their fault, that help is available and, more importantly, to know they are not alone. Humor has been Jan's saving grace in dealing with OCD and she wants to share this legacy with all children. Writing daily, Jan has kept journals for years, which inspire her poetry and stories for children, one of which won an award from the Tampa Writers Alliance in 2007. Jan has a B.A. in Music and a Masters degree in Special Education. Active in her church and a Synodical Deacon, she lives in Tampa.
