Biography

Sherryl Jordan

Sherryl Jordan writes: "All my life I have felt a great affinity with deaf people, and have loved sign language. For several years I worked with profoundly deaf children in schools, and spoke with them through signs. Marnie's dealings with Raven -- her difficulties, frustration, despair, joy, and triumph -- are all things I have experienced."
