Meet the Author

Throughout her life, Ann Davidoff devoted herself to the lives of children. In addition to raising her own family, she was the director of a preschool and holds a master's degree in child development from Tufts University.

From her extensive knowledge of children's literature, she came to appreciate the deep human truths it can provide to its readers. She also recognized that writing literature for children enables authors to learn much about themselves.

Ann was born a Midwesterner (Des Moines, Iowa) but spent the rest of her life in the east. She attended college in Cambridge, Massachusetts (Radcliffe) and New York City (Barnard) then lived in the Boston area, where she directed a preschool and obtained her master's degree in childhood development from the Elliott-Pearson Graduate School at Tufts University. She also lived in Philadelphia and the Hartford (CT) area, where she consulted and taught about child development. She wrote Rose and Raven in 2011–2014.

She died of cancer in 2015 and is survived by her husband, two daughters, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
