Every child has a fear or a special need. The Invisible Friends series was written with the sole purpose of reaching just one child that feels he or she is all alone or that nobody understands. The Logan’s Poems section was written for Barbara’s youngest grandson, who has special medical needs. This poetry section is meant to make children think, laugh, and remember. This book is also written to help both children and parents laugh, and it may possibly make them think and shake their heads. Invisible Friends is dedicated to Victor’s mother and Barbara’s friend, Hazel Furness. Logan, Barbara’s youngest grandson, suffers from a mixture of ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, and light autism. The poems were written to help Logan learn to laugh and be proud of himself. This, in turn, makes life easier on his brothers and sisters.
Barbara Horne was blessed with two daughters, Tammy and Connie, twin sons, James and John, and seven grandchildren.
Writing poetry is her deep passion. As a cancer survivor, she knows the power of children’s laughter.
Victor Furness has a son, Robert, who has Aspergers syndrome. Being mentally challenged, Robert was bullied in school. This inspired Victor to write children’s stories full of hope and understanding.
