EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Debbie knew she wanted to write stories when she was still in grade school, but she kept the dream to herself, afraid of ridicule. Part of her hesitancy was because she is dyslexic, something she did not understand until two of her children were diagnosed with the same learning disorder. Debbie only knew that academics and learning to read was a great effort. In first grade she was the only girl put into the slow reader group. It wasn't until fifth grade that she managed to catch up with others in reading, and she never excelled in school. She did manage to finish high school, but it was a difficult experience. Debbie developed a circle of good friends, however, who helped her cope, and who served as the basis for her later stories about the power of friendship.

When Debbie was around 11 or 12 years old, she saw someone knitting and decided she wanted to learn. Although no one in her family was a knitter, a new passion was born. She pestered her mother until her mom finally took her to a yarn store, where Debbie learned the basic concepts of knitting. Her very first project was a sweater vest for her mother, which she admits was a highly amateur effort. Years later, after her mother had passed away and Debbie was sorting through her mother's possessions, she was profoundly touched to discover that her mother had kept that sweater her whole life.
