This is my son Frankie. He is the one who inspired me to write Topsy the Cat. He began learning to read books this year when he started his first year of school. 

It was such a special moment when I opened the first batch of printed books. Frankie was so proud of me! It was even more special when Frankie picked up a copy, took it for himself and started reading it! That's when I knew my book really passed the "kids test".
