Can you tell me more about Miss Anna?

 

Since you insist, we'll tell you a little bit more.

MISS ANNA

doesn't drink coffee or tea.

It gives her a massive headache.

 

She is refraining herself from eating a Haagen-Dazs ice-cream 

(vanilla her favorite), opting for a carrot stick instead.

She currently lives in Portland, Oregon

and loves the rain that makes everything so green.

She likes Thai food.

She spent 11 years of her early years in Bangkok

eating all the savory dishes Thailand has to offer.

She's Korean (South). 

And considering that she only lived 3 months in that land,

it's amazing that she passes as a native speaker from Korea.

Still, she frequently puts her nose in a dictionary

which very much humbles her.  

She studied Linguistics and Spanish at

the University of California, Irvine.

Don't ask her to speak Spanish, please.

She's very much out of practice. 

She studied TESOL and Composition for her Masters 

during the time she lived in the Bay Area (San Francisco).

She misses Ghiradeilli and its decadent chocolate sundaes .

She never dreamt of becoming a writer.

It was serendipity, really...

She never liked numbers.

She never liked any subjects that dealt with numbers.

She was very very proud of the B- she got in Algebra.

She really worked hard for it.

Today, she is 95% healed of math anxiety.

The Numbers in the Number Story doctored her and

befriended her, making her smile with the endless stories they tell.

She wishes ALL children to be introduced to numbers

in a different light--not as calculating scrooges

but as jolly new friends!

"Children and Parents Deserve the BEST Play-Learning Books!" 

"I am like a chef. I pour all my heart, mind, soul, and spirit into the creation

of one delicious story and serve it to the invited guests--friends young and friends old.

And I love to stand back and watch them savor every piece, every slice, every garnish.

 And I encourage them to play with the food." 

"Many of the currently acclaimed children's books are actually not for children.

They are illustrated story books for adults and not for a family. 

I want to write stories children want to have read over and over and over again;

stories that tickle their imagination, stimulate thought and creativity, permeate

warmth and comfort, and instill the good and beautiful that is still in the world."
