C.R. Kahme had never intended to become a writer. Her career began in the design industry and evolved into journalism. As a writer for local papers covering not only interior design but also politics and a whole variety of subjects, being a great storyteller was always the key to her success. Having struggled with dyslexia. she had a desire to create a story that would entice the most disinterested reader. Susan Tan, children's author of the Cilla series and mentor, said reluctant readers should find this book to be a page-turner. Short chapters, each preceded by a pertinent photo and a last sentence that leaves the reader with a hook, characterize this magnetic tale. All authors are at their best when they are personally involved with their characters. There is no doubt that is the case with Libbie Lyndton, the main character of her latest book "Libbie Lyndton and the Looking Glass."
