About the Author
This is our third book published by 1stBooks Library. I say ours, meaning me and the filing cabinet above, which holds notes, unfinished stories, pictures, and mementos belonging to my husband. I found it in his basement when we were married. Curiosity compelled me to look inside, and I discovered fantastic stuff that he wanted nothing to do with. Rather than discard it, I pieced it together into Jr. Smiled. I can understand why he wanted nothing to do with it –the nightmares that never go away. But the material was too good not to let the world see what neglect, cruelty, and abuse could do to a child. As a schoolteacher, I feel the world should know.
