About the Author
Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books for teens, women, and children. Before publishing, Melody traveled around the world, volunteered in teen ministry, taught preschool, raised two sons, and worked briefly in interior design and later in international adoption. 'I think real-life experiences inspire the best fiction,' she says. Her wide variety of books seems to prove this theory.
Jack Stockman designs paper airplanes and snowmen. He has a whole collection of tin toys, yo-yos, and kites, but only one wife, one daughter, one son, and one daughter-in-law. He loves them all.
