Biographical and Professional Information

Diane Falanga, a mother of two, was inspired to put this book together after receiving her eight-year-old daughter's hilarious letters home from camp. After sharing her story with a number of friends, and sending e-mails across the country she was able to gather a few hundred laugh-out-loud letters for this collection. She is an interior designer on the Board of Directors of the Heart Homes Initiative of Designs for Dignity (a not-for-profit providing furniture for those in need).
