A LITTLE ABOUT MEAs a child I loved to draw but I also loved books, especially picture books I still remember certain illustrations, covers and bindings from books that were read to me as a young girl.I ve lived in many places I grew up in Wantagh on Long Island, N.Y., graduated from Northfield Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts and attended St Lawrence University in upstate New York.At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, I majored in fine art and learned how to design, print and bind handmade books I also took courses in Children s Literature The combination of form and content in the picture book format fascinated me and after graduation I headed for NYC where I worked for 17 years in children s book publishing as a designer and art director But I didn t begin to write until I had children of my own.My books have been published in many countries and in many different languages You can find my books in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and Germany Some of my books have been translated into German, French, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Afrikaans, Xhosa, Tswana, Sesotho, and Zulu I now live with my family in Arizona You can readabout me at my website www.bghennessy.com
