Illana Barran was inspired to write this musical adaptation of the classic Gingerbread story while singing to her young daughter. Rather than simply reading her stories, she developed tunes and sung them. Her daughter would smile; her eyes would light up; looking forward to a song. Thus, every story became a lullaby at anytime, when a soothing remedy was needed. When Illana is not writing short stories and poetry in her Connecticut home, she enjoys sports, photography, painting, cooking for family and friends and travelling with her husband and children. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from New York University, and GCE O'Levels from Oxford and Cambridge.
