About Engelberta Finds Her Feet:
Engelberta thinks she can’t dance. She can’t even skip. Her left foot thinks it’s her right one. Her right foot thinks it’s her left one. Her arms jiggle about out of time like an octopus’ tentacles. Her feet don’t have beat and she just can’t dance. Engelberta can’t find her feet.
Josie can’t dance, but she can boogie...and write! She grew up in a country town where the drizzly weather made her imagination sparkle on paper. From age nine she shelved her homemade books in the school library and received her first rejection letter from Golden Books at thirteen. Decades later, Josie now has over twenty published fiction books on those shelves. Josie has been internationally published and writes non-fiction resources on Autism under the pseudonym of Santomauro.
