Jennifer Holm received a Newbery Honor for her first novel, Our Only May Amelia, which allowed her to eventually become a full-time writer. She is also the author of the Babymouse series, the Boston Jane series, Turtle in Paradise, Middle School Is Worse than Meatloaf, and The Creek, among other titles. Her books have been translated into several languages and The Seattle Children’s Theatre staged Our Only May Amelia in 2002. She now splits her time between writing and taking care of her children, Will and Millie. Her husband, Jonathan Hamel, and she recently collaborated on a series called The Stink Files about a British international cat of mystery. They all live in Northern California with one slightly stinky cat named Princess Leia Organa.
