Andrea Kurth is a special education teacher from Michigan who realized her students weren’t often represented in books and wanted to change that. Inspired by her students, she set out to create a fun series where the story is the focus, not the disability, and is filled with adventure for younger children but exciting enough for the older struggling reader. When Andrea isn’t teaching or writing, she enjoys traveling with her wonderful husband and sons.
Owen is a creative seventh grader. He could play the guitar, piano, and violin if he learned how to play the guitar, piano, and violin. So instead he enjoys playing video games with friends and spending time with family. He aspires to be a movie writer and director one day.
