author’s comments:
Anne Twist was inspired to write Betty and the Mysterious Visitor, her first children’s book, by her own family’s love of reading and sharing stories. When her children were little, she read aloud to them constantly, especially at bedtime. After the death of her husband in 2017, Twist turned to writing poetry as a way of navigating her feelings of grief and loss. Her garden in the countryside of Cheshire, England, brought her peace as her craft grew and was the place where this story first bloomed. She hopes her debut book becomes a bedtime favorite.
