Comments from the author about writing: I'm passionate about sharing history with children and young adults. I'm drawn to true stories of extraordinary people doing ordinary things (such as presidents' children going to school) and ordinary people doing extraordinary things (such as lighthouse keepers' children helping out in emergencies).
