Author Biography

Jannesy DeLeon, a home healthcare worker and expert at adapting and flexibility, was inspired by her two special needs children to write Gabby & Nicky, A Game of Tag, the first book in the series. Jannesy had a dream to write books where children could connect to a disabled main character and learn some important lessons along the way. Jannesy was born and raised in the "Boogie Down" Bronx, New York and currently resides in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Besides being a supermom and writer, she spends her time focused on her family, fitness, reading, and chasing after their lovable dog, Sam.
