Meet the Author
Mara Rockliff (Pieces of Another World) has been a professional writer for children and adults since 1991. Her own favorite meteor shower was one she watched with a group of friends on a bitterly cold night. They threw a pile of old blankets on the ground and huddled close together, telling jokes and singing songs as they stared up into the clear night sky, afraid to blink and miss one of these tiny bits of other, distant worlds as they blazed into our own. She lives in Blacksburg, Virginia with her family. While she has written many beginning readers, textbooks, essays, and magazine articles, Pieces of Another World is her first picture book.
