Linda Sicks is a passionate advocate for animal rights and their well-being. Her inspiration to write the three books comprising The Importance of Family series began when she realized during the past twelve years that she and Nick had lived through many of life's ups and downs together, and that he was indeed her family. Her search for spiritual and metaphysical answers to life, together with a writing style developed through her many journals, have come together with warmth and simplicity in penning The Importance of Family. Today, Linda and Nick continue life's journey together and look forward to offering more life lessons and value messages to children and their families in future books.
