Gail Allison Griffin grew up in a small town in Texas, where she met her husband. They have three children and three grandchildren. Gail loves to read books, bake cookies, and, of course, write children’s books. She fell in love with books when she visited her first library as a child. In high school she was one of the librarian aides, and she knew then that she wanted to be part of that world. By working at a school library in her hometown for over twenty-one years, Gail has devoted her life to putting books into the hands of young readers.
