She finds interest in almost any subject area, but has the most fondness for math and art. To fulfill her creative side, she often turns to paper arts for the tactile attribute it provides. As an illustrator, she loves to transform the images she visualizes to paper collages that accentuate the beauty of different types of paper. As a book lover, she is thrilled to add her unique illustrations to written work for all to enjoy. Gail and her very supportive husband share their metro Detroit home with two plucky Miniature Schnauzers. She loves animals, travel, ice cream, and wildlife photography.

Sherry Wexler has an MSW from Wayne State University and is an advocate for atypicals. It is her hope that this book serves as a first step in changing our current culture to one that is less competitive and that is more focused on acceptance and inclusion as this may decrease rates of anxiety and depression that many students both typical and atypical currently display. Sherry's passion for a more positive life for all is motivated by her love for her husband and two adult children whom she is very proud of. Life is short and everyone deserves to enjoy each day.
