Biographical Sketch

Gloria Rand was born November 8, 1925, in San Francisco, CA. She attended school at the University of Washington and a brief ten-week writing course at King Country night school in Washington. Through the encouragement of her husband the illustrator, Ted Rand, Gloria Rand ventured into a career writing children's literature. She has yielded a variety of picture books, most illustrated by her husband, from adventure jaunts to thoughtful compositions of fiction. Rand's publishing debut featured Salty Dog, a young pup who's owner built sailboats and together they engaged in nautical twists and turns both on and off the sea. The Salty Dogseries is a satisfying adventure journey, like most of her novels. Rand has been praised for her well-researched and simplistic writing style.
