Bethanie Deeney Murguia

Bethanie Deeney Murguia has worked as an art director for publishers, design firms and marketing agencies. In that time she has had many birthdays, but still feels five when she wears her birthday crown. Her daughter, who had many expectations about her fifth birthday, was disappointed when she "didn't feel five" on her big day. This inspired Bethanie to write a story about the quieter, unexpected moments that help us to realize we've grown or changed. She lives in the USA, in San Francisco.
