Biographical Sketch

Growing up in a small town in Eastern Washington, Bonny Becker wrote her first book in the first grade -- the tale of a Thanksgiving turkey that escapes. But as she grew older being a writer seemed like an impossible goal, so after graduating from Scripps College in Claremont, California, with a degree in Psychology, she worked a number of jobs including one brief stint that actually was in psychology. Eventually, after many waitressing jobs, office temp positions, and so on, she decided real human beings became writers and she could at least give it a try. She's earned an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, and worked as a journalist, editor and corporate communications manager. She is the author of several picture books and middle-grade novels, including An Ant's Day Off, My Brother the Robot, The Christmas Crocodile and Just a Minute.
