    Apparently Speaking:

    I work with New Year Publishing, a small company who has published three children’s books written by a now 11 year old author about her experience with
    the birth of her twin sisters.

    “I’m Having Twins” and “My Twins are Coming Home” have been best sellers on Amazon and we just released “My Twins’ First Birthday.”
