AC Gayle, a native of Louisiana, has lived in the southern and eastern U.S. Her diverse interests are reflected in her teaching blind and visually impaired students. It is not just the eye of the artist that AC credits her views and perspective of life from, but that of her parents that taught she and her siblings that all life has value. This is her first published edition.
