About the Author: Sharon Creech

I was born in South Euclid, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, and grew up there with my noisy and rowdy family my parents Ann and Arvel , my sister Sandy , and my three brothers Dennis, Doug and Tom.For a fictional view of what it was like growing up in my family, see Absolutely Normal Chaos In that book, the brothers even have the same names as my own brothers Our house was not only full of us Creeches, but also full of friends and visiting relatives.In the summer, we usually took a trip, all of us piled in a car and heading out to Wisconsin or Michigan or, once, to Idaho We must have been a very noisy bunch, and I m not sure how our parents put up with being cooped up with us in the car for those trips The five day trip out to Idaho when I was twelve had a powerful effect on me what a huge and amazing country I had no idea then that thirty some years later, I would recreate that trip in a book called Walk Two Moons.One other place we often visited was Quincy, Kentucky, where my cousins lived and still live on a beautiful farm, with hills and trees and swimming hole and barn and hayloft We were outside running in those hills all day long, and at night we d gather on the porch wherestories would be told I loved Quincy so much that it has found its way into many of my books transformed into Bybanks, Kentucky Bybanks appears in Walk Two Moons and Chasing Redbird and Bloomability Bybanks also makes a brief appearance by reference, but not by name in The Wanderer.When I was young, I wanted to be many things when I grew up a painter, an ice skater, a singer, a teacher, and a reporter It soon became apparent that I had little drawing talent, very limited tolerance for falling on ice, and absolutely no ability to stay on key while singing I also soon learned that I would make a terrible reporter because when I didn t like the facts, I changed them It was in college, when I took literature and writing courses, that I became intrigued by story telling Later, I was a teacher high school English and writing in England and in Switzerland While teaching great literature, I learned so much about writing about what makes a story interesting and about techniques of plot and characterization and point of view I started out writing novels for adults The Recital and Nickel Malley were both written and published while I was living in England these books were published in England only and are now out of print But the next book was Absolutely Normal Chaos, and ever since that book I have written mainly about young people Walk Two Moons was the first of my books to be published in America When it received the Newbery Medal, no one wassurprised than I was I m still a little bit in shock.After Walk Two Moons came Chasing Redbird, Pleasing the Ghost, Bloomability, The Wanderer, and Fishing in the Air I hope to be writing stories for a long, long time.I am married to Lyle Rigg, who is the headmaster of The Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey, and have two grown children, Rob and Karin Being with my family is what I enjoy most The next best thing is writing stories Sharon Creech
