She was born in Japan, adopted by a couple in the UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. She had big dreams by coming to America with her adopted parents who are American.
She had childlike Faith, that one day she would find her family who lives still in Japan, through the difficult times, of prejuduce, and growing up without her identity. She always felt the gift of writing, from that moment she learned how to write her name.
Her 10th Grade English Teacher walked up to her desk, one day, never spoken to her, except this one time. Mr. Mitchell said: "You are a Writer, keep on writing and dont give it up."
These were encouraging words.
A mother of 2 at the time, of writing Eglion, was the same time, I was writing Eglion, the Lord said, after I found my family in Japan, that my next big miracle would be in 20 or more years. I kept trying to find illusrators, nothing ever came to pass. Now a Mother of 3, I was able to read it to Jenna who was 7 years old, and after reading it, she said:" Mommy was Eglion a real story?" I smiled and replied: "It can be real however way you think it should be."
God keeps his promices, Im grateful and humble that for 23 years in waiting for this book to be born, a book way ahead of its time, it is coming to you to read.
