Meet the Author

Pat Lauber has lived in southwestern Connecticut almost all her life; her family moved there just a few years after her birth in 1924. Growing up, she loved to read and also to write her own stories. After graduating from Wellesley College, where she majored in English, she began working in publishing for Scholastic. It was at Scholastic that she was encouraged to write down stories about her dog Clarence, which eventually evolved into her first book Clarence the TV Dog. Since then she has written more than 100 books for children, mostly nonfiction and has continued freelance writing and editing for several publications. She currently resides in Connecticut.
