Author Martina Marconi was born and raised in northwest Indiana. Most of her life, she struggled with knowing what she wanted to do with her life. She knew she wanted to do something worthwhile that would help people. It wasn't until Martina was 25 years old that she discovered she had a passion for writing. She wrote her first poem in 2008 and her first children's book in 2009. She try to use her love of rhyming words to entertain people and to use that skill to teach at the same time. Martina is a person who wants to push herself to the best of her abilities and to also try new things that will challenge her. One thing she did that challenged her, was to take a beginner ballet class at the age of 28. She was put in a class with younger children. She says it made her feel awkward, but she did not let that feeling stop her from trying something new. Martina does not take ballet anymore but she cherishes the memories and experience of it. She always wants to learn as much as she can and experience life as much as she can. She would like to teach people to truly live their lives and not to let fear stop them from doing what's in their hearts. Martina dedicates this book and all of her writings to her father, who showed her unconditional love and encouraged her to follow her heart.
