Praire Tale – February 2010
“A large part of my life has been an illusion-not and illusion crafted through carefully controlled media, but more like light going through a prism in that there’s one story bent in numerous directions. There’s my mother’s version, there’s the one in the press, there’s the one I lived, and there’s the one I’m still trying to figure out.” MELISSA GILBERT
Daisy & Josephine – january 2014
“I’m so excited to share the story of Daisy and Josephine. I hope it will inspire children to be brave, to sing, and to always shine brightly.” MELISSA GILBERT – STAR OF LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE
