Get to Know the Book’s Author

What would you do if your young child had questions about slavery? Most parents would go to the library or, in the age of electronic media, research it on the computer. D. Marie decided to write a children’s book when she could not find a book that could adequately answer that question for her child. This provided the background for our company, Creative Press Works in Memphis, TN, and the children’s book, Tears for Ashan.

Although the book’s author, D. Marie considered this a burning question in 1988, years of teaching since then have convinced her that it remains a burning question today and that early exposure provides children a foundation for mature discussions in the future.
