Lauren Tarshis lives in Connecticut with her husband and four children. Her parents, mother-in-law, my brother and sister-in-law and three nieces all live right around her. This makes her very happy.
When she’s not with her family, or working on Storyworks, a great magazine for kids, or writing, she likes to be with her friends
As she gets older, she tries harder and harder to learn new things. Learning to write a novel for young people was a process that took many, many years. This year she learned how to create her web site (which was really fun). She also learned to bake perfect chocolate chip cookies (the secret: put the dough in the fridge for an hour or so before you bake them). She is still thinking about what to learn next year. www.laurentarshis.com
