About the Author
How the Firefly Got Its Name was written in 1999 when Ashley Renee Thompson was twelve years old. Ashley was a lover of the Latin language as well as Greek and Roman mythology. Originally an assignment for her seventh grade Latin class, How the Firefly Got Its Name was submitted to the Virginia Junior Classical League Latin Convention after the urging of her teacher where it won first place. Ashley was killed three years later in a motor vehicle crash. I had always felt her fable would make a wonderful children s book and I hope that you will feel the same. Intentionally or not, Ashley was able to weave in her own values of determination, perseverance, and always doing her best. Ashley was an honor student, competitive gymnast, and a loving, compassionate young lady. I hope you will find How the Firefly Got Its Name both magical and unique. I bet you will never look at a little firefly the same way again! Let your little light shine!
