In 1977, when I was 7 yrs old, I saw Star Wars with my big sister @ the movie theater & I knew at that moment I wanted to be a storyteller. Little did I know that I’d get to tell part of that amazing story. Writing this book was a dream come true. Children need stories🤓❤️📚 pic.twitter.com/L8n8ekpeg1
