Alisah Horne is a lifelong resident of North Carolina, having grown up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She resides with Ronnie Horne, her husband and the love of her life. Alisah's deeply rooted love of story sharing began in infancy on her "Granddaddy Minter's" knee. She listened with rapt attention when Lucy, the subject of this book, shared her life story over the years. Through years of working with children and acquiring certification in literacy programs like Motheread(R), Inc, Raising a Reader, and Read to Me, she experienced firsthand the positive impact that reading to children and placing books into their hands can have. Through funds raised from her storytelling business, Tales Worth Telling, Alisah continues to provide stories and books to children throughout Wilkes County.
