News and Notes: Direct support professional at Monarch publishes children’s book

9-Who-has-seen-the-wind smAngela Thompson’s lifelong dream has always been to write a children’s book. As a child, she recalls spending her time coming up with stories and ideas, and that followed her into adulthood. In April, her dream finally came true with the publication of her first children’s book entitled, “Who Has Seen the Wind Today?”

The book is about four animals chasing the wind to discover where it is going. Thompson, a direct support professional at Monarch’s Columbus Industries, said it took her a month to write the story after developing the concept. She then met with the publisher and they talked through ideas for the book’s illustrations.

Thompson said the book is a fun, easy read for kids of all ages and has read it with each of her five grandchildren.

Thompson has four more books in the works and looks forward to continuing to write more stories in the future.
