Author and Ohio teacher Judy Bruns models for her students a love for the written word. Published in newspapers, magazines, and other media, she is now meeting with positive reviews in the world of children’s books. Hattie and Her 43 Cats, her most recent children’s story, addresses the onset of Alzheimer’s with the compassion and sensitivity fitting for a young audience. Her first book, Donnie, Lost in the Cornfield, follows an event in the life of a young, mentally handicapped boy.
