I am the author of Chronicles of MatiLou and PerryAnn. The stories demanded to be told. I am the storyteller. As the author, I tried to record the girls’ hope, what they felt and learned, much of their dialogue, and what they gained and lost along the way. Although fiction, their journey resonates with current times.
