COMING SOON! Meet Wisteria Jane!
Say hello to the mostly sweet, but sometimes sour, four-year-old Southern
belle Miss Wisteria Jane Hummell. Wisteria Jane loves jumping in mud puddles,
“rainbow” is her favorite color, and she desperately wants a pet unicorn.
Wisteria Jane’s days are filled with adventures, giggles, bruises, and life lessons.
In her first adventure, Wisteria Jane, she learns how to be a thoughtful friend as
she hones the skill of being honest without adding the “not so nice” truths she
is so tempted to share.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Amber Harris is the mostly together, but sometimes scatterbrained,
author of the Wisteria Jane Hummell series. Just like Wisteria Jane,
Amber’s life is one of chaos and giggles, in equal proportion. Amber has
an undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona and a master’s in
education, with an emphasis on autism, from Arizona State University. She
lives with her family in Dallas, Texas.
