Meet the Author

I write for kids. I write for cooks. I have 50 published books out. 11 of them won awards.


I had an adventurous, feisty, interesting marriage for 23 largely happy years. My husband, Ned, went out bicycling one day, got hit by a car and died.


I garden. I blog. I cook. I live in Vermont. Used to live in Arkansas. Before that, New York.


These days I hang out a lot with my very old mother, Charlotte Zolotow, a famous children’s book writer. Also her cat, Tumbleweed. My late father, Maurice Zolotow, was Marilyn Monroe’s first biographer.


Yes, it’s my real name.


I think anxiety, procrastination and discomfort are powerful creative forces in disguise. I think that apparent obstacles are building materials. That writing practices and principles spill over, cornucopia-like: from writing to life.


I teach writing. I teach people how to befriend uncertainty and fear through writing and thereby reclaim their creative powers of self-love and reinvention. And become better writers.


I think we’re all part of the narrative life tells itself about itself. No wonder we all have something to say.

    Exceptional Book!

    I was skeptical about this book when asked by my HS Creative Writing teacher to read it 2 weeks before the author visited our class. I put off starting the book until I HAD to get it read, but once I began reading I found I couldn't put the book down! I read it twice, and didn't want to give it back when the time was up! Elizabeth was a character I could relate to easily. The emotions in this story often matched my own experiences. The book is currently out of print, but is well worth hunting down if you can locate it.
