This month's featured author . . .
Funny, frank and affable, Julie Krantz often describes herself as 'one of those kids who headed to the library for a good time.' A budding author at age thirteen, she published her first article in the Riverton, NJ newspaper about her school's new vending machine.
An award-winning author (2008 recipient of an SCBWI Letter of Merit, a DAC Emerging Artists Grant in 2006, and a First Place in Children's Writing from Carteret Writers, Inc. in 2000) Ms. Krantz writes poetry and fiction and illustrates her own picture books. Active in various print and online forums, her work can be found in Spider Magazine, the SCBWI National Bulletin and on Amazon. Her two latest picture books, ISABEL PLUM: ICHTHYOLOGIST and TIP & OLIVER: BFFs were published in January of 2014.
In addition to writing, Julie Krantz has raised four children (and had her hair raised by them!) and loves hiking, camping, shoping, kniting, and participating in blogs and writing contests. She also enjoys visiting schools for workshops, talks and poetry readings.
That just about covers it. Oh! Except for watching movies and traveling. In fact, Ms. Krantz has lived in many places, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Arizona, California, North Carolina, Florida and France.
STELLA BELLAROSA: Tales of an Aspiring Teenage Superhero is Julie's first novel. Tip & Oliver: BFFs is first in the series of Tip & Oliver Books for Young Readers. Visit her facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/
