Bobbi and Diana were made for each other. It just took a little while for Diana to figure it out.

Diana Likely was inspired to write her first book, Bobbi Finds a Forever Home, while working as an OASIS reading tutor. Her second grade student loves animals, and what she refers to as “saving stories.” Diana wrote this story of unconditional love based on true events from her past.

Praise for Bobbi Finds A Forever Home: “If you love animals – or know in your heart that you should love animals – you’ll enjoy this story of a cat that found a home. Bobbi and Diana were made for each other. It just took a little while for Diana to figure it out.” – Bill McClellan, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
