Biographical and Professional Information
Osborn has created a wonderful story for children based on the happiness a child can feel in helping others, with illustrations by Michael Osborn (her son), and edited by elementary teacher, Kimberly Osborn (Michael's wife). The only child of a small-town minister and his busy wife, Osborn had time alone to read and to create stories for herself and her friends. In A Week of Bunnies, she has put her creative nature and the influence of her parents to good use.
Osborn appeared on Central Illinois WDWS radio with Alex Ruggerri in the fall of 2012.
