About the Author
Debra Kaatz began writing stories when she was very young. She would sew the pages together to make a book and write tales that she would give to people. When she read library books she would often write another chapter or two about the person in the story and leave them in the back of the book.
One day she read a story that had been written by Rumi. He was a whirling dervish who whirled and dissolved in the love of God. She began to memorise those stories and would tell them to people. In this book are some of her favourite stories.
