"...a journey told through the eyes and heart of a young girl with the skill set of one not yet mature enough to see through the eyes of an adult. Ann Herrick's ability to create the voice of a child is amazing, as her tale builds into thetrue-to-life world faced by everyone today. A gem of a gift for younger readers, letting them know what they feel is felt by others, too no matter how 'together' they seem."~~Dianne, Tome Tender Reviews
"...The story has many layers to it, and the vivid descriptions bring the scenes and the characters alive, and keep readers entertained till the very end."

Ann grew up in Connecticut, where she graduated from The Morgan School and Quinnipiac University. She now lives in Oregon with her husband, who was her high-school sweetheart. Their wonderful daughter is grown, married and gainfully employed, and has given Ann her only grand-dog, Puff, a bloodhound-Rottweiler-beagle mix and six grand-kitties.
