"Backward Billy" wasn't really backward, he just needed guidance. He needed to learn the importance of reading instructions first. Lucky for him, he had someone patient and kind to teach him.
Born in the Colorado Rockies during the Depression, PJ listened to stories made up by her mother. She in turn made up stories for her children. In 2008, PJ published her first book, "Michael O'brien and The Magic Hat." She wrote for her great grandchildren, but decided to share her stories with children who are growing up in circumstances not unlike those of the Depression years. Twenty-eight titles later, PJ is still sharing. She sends her books to Homeless Shelters and Children's Organizations in the Western U.S.
