Cookie has the perfect life. Every day Cookie wakes up to another beautiful day in sunny Florida.
She loves her daily routine that includes a morning walk, a yummy breakfast, playing with her sister and finally, taking a long nap in her cozy little bed, all in that order.
Everything is fine until one day it all goes upside down.
I grew up on a farm in rural southern Pennsylvania as the oldest of eight children. My dad was an electrician and my mom was a homemaker. I wrote my first story in sixth grade about animals. My teacher, Mrs. Bakkon, helped me with the grammar. Teachers can be the most wonderful gift to their students. I still think of my teacher and how she helped to mold me into the person I am today. My story won an award and was published in a magazine. In high school, I again involved myself in writing as the Sports Editor and Editor In Chief of my school newspaper.
Cookie woke up to a beautiful sunny day in Miami where she lived with her mommy and her twin sister, Sugar.
