Hi! My name is Dede Stockton. I love to read and have enjoyed reading my whole life. As a child, I was a military brat and so lived all over the world. Most places did not have television, or at least not American television, and because I am an only child and there were no electronic devices in those days, I read… Anything I could get my hands on!
I live in Colorado (when I am not snowbirding in Arizona), with my husband, children, grandchildren and dogs. I absolutely love Colorado! I see the mountains from the windows in my office and can frequently enjoy all 4 seasons on any given day! I also own a home based business as a virtual assistant and love interacting with clients all over the country. Part of the freedom of being self-employed is one of being able to pursue other dreams. Writing a book is one of those dreams and I hope to be able to write many more in the coming years.
I have two grown children, Kirstin and Cody, who were the inspiration for the book. In the first 4 books in the series, I have been able to add more and more characters, mostly based on my family, my life and my love for the sea!
Dede is also a proud member of the Colorado Author’s League, The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and AuthorU and is a Certified Lexile Parter!
