Anne Burack Sayre has spent over twenty years in the field of marketing and sales. She and her husband have one son and as he evolved and developed, she began to have a gnawing feeling to write children’s books about growing up and learning in the world of a unique child. Anne had formed the basis of the character Melinda, but now she was inspired to add a younger brother, named Simon, to complete the duo. Anne used many details of her true experiences from her son’s school environment, working with the Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO), and dealing with her son’s sports activities and social situations. Anne is currently self-employed but has been writing since 2005 and lives with her husband and son in Indianapolis. She is in the process of writing her next several books.
