Anastasia Suen, author of ninety-eight books, wrote her first picture book when she was eleven years old. She wrote in junior high, high school, college, and as an elementary school teacher. After writing for kids for twenty-nine years, Anastasia sold her first book on her fortieth birthday. Six weeks later, she sold her second book, and six weeks after that she sold her third book: Man on the Moon. Today, Anastasia works as an editorial consultant for several publishers and teaches adults how to write for kids in her online workshops, at Southern Methodist University and Staff Development for Educators.
