About the Author:

She lost her mom when she was only four. After a few years her Father moved to Texas. So she was left with her older sister Madelle and Grandmother Emelina who watched over her and taught her the ways of the world. She was an overly sinsative and lonely child, not realizing that she missed her Mother until other children mention their Mother. She spent most of her time in the Library at school while the other kids played games and did things that she wasn't interested in. She was asked several times to write love letters for them to their love interest, than when thay said, "that was exactly what I would have said", She was surprised, but it felt good. She always got A's in reading. Perhaps she was not knowingly training to write. Several times she got caught reading a book instead of doing the job at hand and was admonished. She writes with honesty and humor.
