Stephanie Calmenson

Stephanie Calmenson never anticipated being a writer, and in fact resisted writing for a long time, convinced she wasn't good at it. But while studying for her master's degree in elementary education, she became enamored of picture books - and discovered that she wanted to write them as well as read them. Calmenson worked as an elementary-school teacher and as an editor of children's books before turning to writing full-time.

Though Calmenson has not worked in the classroom for many years, she keeps contact with students and teachers through school visits, and her awareness of what makes a book successful in their eyes comes through in her writing. While she does occasionally face writer's block, it doesn't last long, as her track record can attest: She is now the author of more than 100 books, which range in themes from concept books such as Dinner at the Panda Palace and It Begins with an A to amusing reworkings of familiar stories such as The Principal's New Clothes to acclaimed nonfiction books about dogs such as Rosie, A Visiting Dog's Story and May I Pet Your Dog? The How-to Guide for KIDS Meeting DOGS (and DOGS Meeting KIDS).
