Tell us a little about yourself. I am a 55 year old retired special ed school teacher who has always loved reading and writing. While many of my colleagues paled at the thought of teaching writing, I embraced it as a favorite subject and gladly gave over Math instruction to them. I loved teaching but writing has been my passion ever since I was a young girl and I am delighted to have this "desire of my heart" become a reality!
What was your motivation behind this project? During my years of teaching, I came to know two young boys who had cerebral palsy to the extent that they could neither walk nor speak. I always wanted to write a story in which those boys became the hero, and Jody, in my book, is the hero of this story.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope they will gain a greater respect for the intelligence, humor and compassion that are sometimes hidden under the more obvious characteristics of handicapped people.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I had to do research into many subjects I was unfamiliar with to make my story believable. One thing I was astounded to discover was how they use the same Botox that decreases wrinkles to help cerebral palsied people regain some of their mobility. That was a pleasant shock.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love to read a variety of books from myseries, to fantasy to good general fiction. Some of the authors who have inspired me are JRR Tolkien,Anne Tyler and Jan Karon.I have been inspired by many Christians in my life who have taught me to walk the walk and trust that God is in charge.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I am just thankful that CBD has brought together so many wonderful books at affordable prices so we can continue to read and learn and enjoy them.
