The winner of numerous awards for both fiction and nonfiction, Jennifer Armstrong has written more than 100 books for all ages, from pre-school through young adult. Growing up in South Salem, New York, Armstrong knew by the time she was six that she was going to be an author. As a child she spent countless hours outside, making up adventure stories and acting them out.

"I always felt like a writer," she says. "I always had a good imagination, and loved making up stories. And I always loved reading. I just seemed natural to me that I would become an author."
