Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich is the daughter of a Jamaican mother and Nigerian father, and married to a man of Croatian descent. And that helps explain the name.

She"s worked as a freelance writer and contributing editor at various magazines, and has developed educational materials geared to educators and students. Olugbemisola has worked extensively in youth development, at community organizations and New York City schools. She was twice awarded a public service fellowship by the Echoing Green foundation to work on a creative arts and literacy project with adolescent girls.

Olugbemisola received her M.A. in Educational Communication and Technology, with a concentration in Adolescent Literacy and English Education, her B.Sc. from Cornell University, and is a member of the Society of Children"s Book Writers and Illustrators.

“I spent a number of my younger years in different communities across the globe. I attended public, private,"international", and religious schools. These experiences have had lasting benefits as I was exposed to many languages, traditions, customs - new and thrilling worlds. And each move brought with it both an opportunity and a struggle surrounding identity, which is a recurring theme in my work.”

She lives with her family in Brooklyn, New York where she is also an enthusiastic if not particularly skilled crafter.Biography from www.authorsnow.com
