Award-winning author Deborah Hopkinson grew up in Massachusetts and after college moved to Hawaii where she worked as a college development administrator while nurturing her writing career. In this 9th book of the Author and YOU series, Hopkinson shares her curiosity and the manner in which that curiosity leads to investigation and research and then to her many fiction and nonfiction stories. The author discusses each of her books, providing the back story, the impetus for the book, and the research activities that brought each of the stories to young readers. The particular emphasis of this book is the writing of books for young readers within a historical context and how to use primary source documents in that effort. The author has a well-developed Web site with lesson plans for her books already in place. Her books are particularly valuable in school libraries as many are set in a historical context. She also has several biographies in her portfolio and is well known in that context to school librarians. Grades K-6.

Deborah Hopkinson is the author of numerous award-winning books for children, including Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt, winner of the International Reading Association Award, A Band of Angels, winner of the Golden Kite Award, Under the Quilt of Night, winner of the Washington State Book Award, Girl Wonder, winner of the Great Lakes Book Award and a Jane Addams Peace Award Honor Book, and Shutting out the Sky, an NCTE Orbis Pictus Honor Book, a Jane Addams Peace Award Honor Book, and a James Madison Book Award Honor. Deborah Hopkinson lives in Corvallis, Oregon, where she serves as director of foundation relations for the Oregon State University Foundation.
