About the author:
Lea M. Gorgulu Webb is an attorney/solicitor/barrister who has long worked representing children and families after traumatic events. In 2010, Lea's husband died at a young age, leaving her and their two young children lost and traumatized.

Lea and her family had a practice of turning to books for guidance, entertainment and relief, and she was disappointed with the books available for grieving children. Lea knew that trauma victims begin to heal dramatically when able to find words to describe seemingly indescribable pains. She had also seen many victims soothed by the realization that they were not alone. Knowing that others have survived the same sort of trauma and pain provides one sort of solace and support.

Lea moved, with her children, from the US to the Mediterranean coast, where she began to heal and write the Everybody's Family series.

Everybody's Family is just that: A caring family of characters. Jasmin, Jon and their mother are able to support one another, and each of us, through sharing, listening to one another, and providing ideas and space for all of us to share and listen to one another, as well.
