ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sally Warner is the author of more than forty books, including two works of historical fiction. However, Sally spent the first part of her working life in the visual arts. She was an art education teacher (Pasadena City College) and exhibiting artist who showed her charcoal drawings – primarily nature-based – in solo shows at numerous colleges and universities across the country. She was also invited to work at several art colonies across the U.S. Speaking of Sally’s work, the noted British art writer Sister Wendy Beckett said, “This self-forgetfulness in a natural phenomenon is the secret of Warner’s power.”
Sally’s first three books – about creativity – were for adults. And then, as she puts it, “I worked my way up to writing for children.” Sally has written three series to date for young readers: the Lily series, the Emma series, and the EllRay series. Coming soon (2016 – 2018) is a series about Alfie Jakes, EllRay’s little sister!
In addition, Sally has written many “stand-alone” novels for middle readers, and older readers as well. These include “Sort of Forever” (Knopf), “How to be a Real Person (in Just One Day)” (Knopf), “A Long Time Ago Today” (Viking), and “This Isn’t About the Money” (Viking).
Sally’s books have been published in many foreign countries, including Italy, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, and several countries in South America.
Sally is not able to do school visits at this time, but she welcomes your questions and answers her mail!
