About the Author
Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen never thought she would grow up to be a writer. But
when two small children came along, Sudipta found herself less interested in biology (her
original career) as she was in parenting. And for the first time, she found
that she had stories to tell, stories she wanted to share with her daughters,
and she decided to try to get published. After a half-dozen rejections, in
2003, Sudipta sold her first story to a children’s magazine, Highlights for Children. Sudipta has since
written several children’s picture books and eighteen nonfiction books for kids.
Sudipta visits schools to share her stories and experience, and teaches writing
to children and adults. She lives in New Jersey with her family and an
imaginary pony named Penny.
