The Stolen Coin is proof that I've always had writing talent :)
It was written by my best friend and me when we were ten years old (that's us, age six. I'm the blonde.). Written, performed, and canonized, all in an hour--child prodigies, indeed.
Note original spelling. Also note that the “idenical" twins were of course played by us: a Scandinavian blonde and a Hawaiian brunette.
