I've been writing children's books since forever! (Actually, 1972.) I love my work, and I'm particularly proud of my 40-book Katie Woo series: the first easy to read chapter books that star an Asian child.
Now Katie's friend Pedro has his own 4-book series: Pedro For President, Pedro Goes Buggy, Pedro's Mystery Club, and Pedro's Big Goal. All four of these stories can also be read in one big volume, Pedro: First Grade Hero. Two additional Pedro books are coming in January: Pedro and the Shark and Pirate Pedro.

I'm also the author of "Happy In Our Skin,"...
