Author Biography: Harriet May Savitz cares about many things, and her writing is a direct result of her interests. Her three most recent novels—Run, Don't Walk, On the Move; and The Lionhearted—reflect her most important concerns. As she says, her books are "about the physically disabled, about the change in attitude amongst the disabled population."
