Maria Testa has written several children's books, including the middle-grade novel BECOMING JOE DIMAGGIO. A lifelong New Englander, Maria Testa grew up in Rhode Island, graduated from Brown University and Yale Law School, and now lives in Maine. About ALMOST FOREVER, she says, "It is a tribute to the children of Vietnam veterans and to those who did not come home from the war. It is my hope that we can always remember ourselves as children, so as not to forget the new generation of young people still waiting for the end of forever."
