About the Author

REGGIE WHITTEN is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma ('77) and its law school ('80). He practices law full-time in Oklahoma City with the firm of Whitten Burrage and is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, which limits its members to the top one percent of a state's attorneys.

In his spare time, Whitten visits schools throughout Oklahoma to recount the story of his eldest son's death from an addiction to prescription drugs. It was this tragedy that led Whitten to meet Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe and begin his philanthropic work. The co-founder of two organizations, Pros for Africa and FATE (Fighting Addiction Through Education), he previously co-authored a book about his son's addiction, What's Your Fate?, with his dear friend Jim Priest. In honor of his son, Brandon, who loved dinosaurs as a child, Whitten also co-found ExplorOlogy and co-found Native Explorers, an educational program that seeks to inspire young people to get involved in science. To date, more than 53,000 kids have completed the program.

Whitten was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2013 and currently lives in Edmond, Oklahoma.

NANCY HENDERSON is an award-winning author who often writes about people who are making a difference through their work. Her first book, Able! How One Company's Extraordinary Workforce Changed the Way We Look at Disability Today (BenBella Books, updated hardback edition, 2008) tells the story of a factory owner whose practice of hiring employees with physical and mental disabilities catapulted his rug manufacturing company to international success.

Henderson has published hundreds of articles in Parade, The New York Times, Smithsonian and other periodicals. She is a member of the prestigious American Society of Journalists and Authors and lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
