About the Author

Marcy Winograd is a former congressional peace candidate and current community organizer, Marcy teaches English to special education students at a public high school in Los Angeles. In Marcy's class, students tell their life stories in poetry and debate animal testing and other charged issues in persuasive essays.

Before introducing the writing of Pablo Neruda and Langston Hughes to her students, Marcy broadcast news on both commercial and public radio stations, such as Pacifica's KPFK and an NPR affiliate, where she earned three Golden Mike awards, the broadcast industry's top honors for writing and reporting.

Marcy lives with her union-side labor lawyer husband Ira "Buddy" Gottlieb, texts with her stylish daughter Gina, and cuddles with her three rescue cats who compete for attention before bedtime.

Sometimes, however, the whiskered ones must wait until morning because Marcy is also an insomniac who likes to write in the middle of the night. "It's quiet then, so my characters and I can think."

Jackie Hirtz, M.S.Ed., is a former elementary school teacher, is a writer and writing coach. She discovered the power of the written word when she first began writing poetry at age nine, thanks to her wonderful grandmother Martha, who gave her all the encouragement in the world. Jackie's credits include Disney, The Los Angeles Times, and the Brentwood Media Group. She has also written for companies and non-profit organizations. Together, she and Marcy wrote for children's television, including Nickelodeon's animated series "Doug." Jackie believes that good books help make the world a better place because they open minds and hearts. When she's not writing, reading or teaching, Jackie is training her puppy to become a registered therapy dog as well as a Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.™)
