About the Author
Concetta Kennedy was born and raised in the small town of Corry, Pennsylvania, but has spent the majority of her life in Southern Tier New York, near the beautiful Chautauqua Lake, since she married. She taught reading at Southwestern Central School, to not only first graders but also high school students who learned to love reading through much careful guidance and practice. She loves to read fiction as well as nonfiction, but because her wild imagination wasn’t completely fulfilled at times, she found she needed to write for the reader who loves the unbelievable to happen. She doesn’t write about the ridiculous. She writes as though there is a remote possibility that anything in her stories could happen.
