About the Author

Brittney Mortimer is also a music therapist. She uses music to assist others in achieving life goals such as better communication, social skills, and interacting with their world. Piano and guitar are the instruments she likes the best, and she wants to learn to play the banjo. Music is one of her main loves, but she has many hobbies which include writing, hiking, cooking, bird watching, juggling, singing, laughing, playing board games, and writing letters. She does not like onions, cotton balls, bad humor, spicy food, discourteous behavior, or finding insects unexpectedly. She does enjoy adventures, Mongolian Barbecue, uplifting reading, cute animals, practical jokes, good friends, ice cream, sunsets, rivers, and hugs. Brittney wrote this book to illustrate that happiness is an attitude, not a set of circumstances. Relationships matter more than things or events, and sometimes good friends can be disguised as something else at first.
