Rebecca Wojahn (W. H. Beck)
Becky Wojahn has loved books all her life. As a kid, her dad used to tease her that she would grow up to be librarian because her nose was always stuck in a book! And that’s exactly what she did. In addition to being an elementary school librarian, Becky also loves to tell stories, especially the kind that boys like to read (she has never owned anything pink on purpose and likes to use parentheses in her writing). She has written a number of nonfiction books, including the Follow that Food Chain series (Lerner Books) that she authored with her husband, Donald. Her first work of fiction, a middle-grade novel called MALCOLM AT MIDNIGHT, with illustrations by Brian Lies, was published by Houghton Mifflin in 2012. A sequel, MALCOLM UNDER THE STARS, publishes in Fall 2015. Her nonfiction picture book, GLOW: ANIMALS WITH THEIR OWN NIGHT LIGHTS (also with Houghton Mifflin) will come out in 2016. Becky grew up in Wisconsin, where she still lives with her husband, two sons, and a large black dog.
