My Great Family Vacation

You will experience Anna’s many feelings – a little scared of the airplane, but calmed by her dad; excited by all of the new things she is experiencing; weary but proud after climbing the many, many steps to one of the Mayan ruins; surprised when things that look “real” weren’t and things that she thought could not possibly be real actually were real . . . and, as always, happy and content to be with her family.

Most of all, My Great Family Vacation is a celebration of the importance and joy of family, which is a recurring theme in Anna’s writings.

Imagine!

Imagine, Anna’s second book, is more poetry than a story.  It is about a world literally made of edible sweets but in reality it is a happy “SWEET” world. The “SWEETNESS” of the world is seen not only in the laughter of people but also made so close to our imagination by actually tasting it everywhere we walk and seeing it anywhere we look around.

The Star That Was An Angel

Anna seems to be surrounded by a magical world that follows her everywhere she goes and is only visible through her pure and innocent eyes. Anywhere she goes, her attention stays on the star that is following her… The Star that is an Angel shows us how faith, similar to that of the young author and young children, opens our eyes to the invisible. For many of us whose minds have been distracted by the infinite demands of life, a miracle might be needed to “see” the invisible around us.
