About the Author

Susan Weiner loves children's literature because ordinary rules do not apply, and anything can happen! Susan went to college in both England and America, but did her graduate study in history at UCLA. There, she kindled a passion for life and culture in the seventeenth century, especially in Great Britain. It was with great delight that, some years later, she began a book of pirate poems based on her studies. These days, Susan lives in Maryland near the Potomac River with one cat and many books.
