I don't know if I consider myself qualified to write a book, much less a children's book, but after raising 3 kids and now a grandbaby, I do understand a little what goes through a child's mind. I feel kids keep us young and on our toes, that's why I decided to teach special ed and work with preschoolers with developmental delays. I get paid to play with kids. I work for the Dequeen Mena Educational Coop, and I live in the small town of Mena, Ar where everyone knows their neighbors. I am very fortunate to live in this small community because it is a great place to raise a family. I have been married for over 20 years to my husband, Burt. I hope children and adults enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Curtiz Says will be a great series.
