About the Book

For a number of years, I had a feeling of pervasive sadness in the month of December that I could not explain, especially around Christmastime. Our birthday, Anna Christine’s and mine, is December 12, just twelve days before Christmas.

I do not know how old I was when I learned I had a twin sister. The only thing I remember being told is, “You had a twin sister and she died.” End of story. She was never talked about and never even given a name. For a period of time she did not seem real to me, so I gave her the name of Anna Christine. In my heart I wanted to make that connection and tell our story.

That desire persisted, and out of that desire the book I longed to write is becoming a reality. It’s My Birthday Too is a story about the journey of twin souls. During a memorable walk in December 2004, I connected to Anna Christine, and the bond that only twins have has become stronger every day. I know now that my twin has been with me always. She always has been and she always will be.

So I invite you to join us on our journey. It is a story of a forever kind of love.
