Othello Bach writes in several genres, including: thrillers, children's books, how-to nonfiction, spiritual, and a memoir. She was a nonreader until the eighth grade, yet sold her first bestselling novel to Avon Books at the age of 24. Her whimsical children's books and the music she composed to accompany them, have been recorded by celebrities Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes and Sandy Duncan.
Othello taught creative writing at UC, Irvine, and at Cypress College in Cypress, CA. (And yes, Othello is the name on her birth certificate.)
