Meet the Author

I’m Ethelle Gladden, and I live in Ojai, California. I’m a family matriarch of sorts, with my family consisting of a niece, two nephews and four cats—everybody else is strewn along the east coast. I drove to California in 1988 and found my way to Ojai in 1993. My career in writing children’s picture books was launched in 2010. It’s what I enjoy and have yet to outgrow (if 56 years hasn’t done it, nothing will)!
