One of Minnesota's promising authors comes from our own back-yard. 7-year-old Kristina Heinlein of Detroit Lakes has quite the story to tell and so, using her markers and her pencil, she has written a book called: "Beans Great Adventures." All to help other kids who may be scared about surgery at the hospital. In her 2nd grade classroom, the book is already a best seller. She hopes to use money from the sale of the books to buy toys and other items for kids staying at Children's Hospital.
