D. L. Johnson graduated from New Iberia Senior High School in southern Louisiana. He set out to write children’s books based on the moralities his mother instilled in him as a child. Now a father with children of his own, he wanted to pass on those values not only to his kids but to other children through positive reading. He thanks the family and friends who believed in him and dedicates this book to his two beautiful daughters, Zoria and Tamarin. They are his inspiration.
