          • found: Publishers Weekly website, Dec. 1, 2015: Star Bright Books Shines On: 20 Years and Counting, By Judith Rosen, Oct 23, 2014 (Deborah Shine was publishing books about diversity and tolerance at Star Bright Books, which she founded in 1994 in Harlem and relocated to Cambridge, Mass. She grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa under apartheid, a system she fled the day after she turned 21. She moved to London, where she became a fashion designer. Her book career began after she married and came to the United States. She and her family went first to Hawaii and then, in 1968, to Lexington, Ky., where within days of arriving she opened the Owl and the Pussycat, one of the country's first children's-only bookstores. Altogether Shine has written, edited, or adapted more than 65 books under variations of her own name and various pseudonyms, including Edith Adams, Sarah Bright, and Robin Harris.)
