Stephen Krensky did not have the kind of childhood anyone would choose
to write books about. It was happy and uneventful, with only the
occasional bump in the night to keep him on his toes. He started
writing in college and his first book was published in 1977, two years
after he graduated. He is now the author of over 100 fiction and
nonfiction children’s books, including novels, picture books, easy
readers and biographies. When Mr. Krensky feels he has spent enough
time hunched over his computer, he likes to play tennis and softball.
He and his wife Joan live in Lexington, Massachusetts.
