For many years now I've been an adopted aunt in this large extended family. I don't know how it happened, but it did! And they have been a blessing in my life. Here we are:

I had so much fun writing The Big Buna Bash, and I want to share it to inspire cultural pride in kids who might feel like they don't fit in because of their differences. I believe in diversity and inclusion; that's why I wrote The Big Buna Bash!
