About the Author: Jean Van Leeuwen

When I was growing up in the small of Amanda PDF/EPUB ã town of Rutherford, New Jersey, I was always called a tomboy That was because I loved riding bikes, climbing trees, and playing baseball with the boys in the neighborhood When I finally came inside, I had another name bookworm I was seldom seen without More Tales eBook º a book in my hand In the summertime, I would go to the library and come back with as many books as I could carry I read by flashlight under the blankets when I was supposed to be sleeping And I read in the car, even though it made me carsickI was especially Tales of Amanda eBook ´ fond of reading about certain subjects For a long time, I wished very hard for a dog, so I read all the dog stories I could find After I finally got a dog, I moved on to horse stories and mystery stories By the time I was in sixth grade, I felt as if I d read every single book in our small town library That was when I decided to write my own book It seemed like an easy thing to do I got myself a notebook, sharpened some pencils, and went to work At that point I was enthralled with Anna Sewell s Black Beauty So I decided to write a book just like itWell, it turned out that writing a book wasn t quite as easy as I thought By the time I got to the third chapter, I had run out of ideas for my story And it didn t help that I didn t know anything at all about horses I had never taken riding lessons or even been on a horse So I put away my notebook and gave up my writing career at the age of elevenLater on, after studying journalism at Syracuse University, I moved to New York City and got a job in the children s book department of a publisher For my job I read lots of children s books and manuscripts After awhile I decided that maybe I could try again to write a book This time I was a little bit smarter I wrote about things I knew about, and also took a writing class Eventually, my first book, Timothy s Flower, was publishedSince then I have writtenthan fifty books Many of them have been inspired by my own two children, David and Elizabeth When they were very small, I didn t have much time for writing The only free time in my day was when they were taking their naps So I began to write little stories about what they were doing and saying These stories grew into a book, Tales of Oliver Pig Over the years, that first book has grown into a whole series of Easy to Read books about Oliver and Amanda Pig Even though my children are now grown up, I still write from my memories of the fun we had together when they were youngIn recent years I have become very interested in American history, and especially how our country was settled This interest has led me to begin writing historical fiction I like writing different kinds of stories funny ones and serious ones, fantasy and real life, stories about animals and people, children today and children who lived a long time ago I enjoy writing for different age groups, from preschool to middle schoolNow I live in an old house in Chappaqua, New York, not far from New York City When I am not writing, I teach a Writers Workshop for adults and visit schools to talk about books I also volunteer in a first grade classroom, where I help children with their writing I enjoy working in my garden, playing tennis, and listening to music And when I am not doing any of that, I like to readThe truth is, I am still a bookworm.
