About the Author: Hope Vestergaard

As a kid, I was a book fiend I read anything and everything I could get my hands on, including encyclopedias, cereal boxes, and grown up books I lived at the library, checking out the maximum number of books allowed each week and blasting through the summer reading programs When I exhausted the youth and young adult departments at the library, I walked to the flagship Borders store and read new books, cover to cover, in one sitting I was gentle, I promise And all the books I buy nowthan make up for my childhood borrowing When I was eight or nine, I wrote this sentence in my journal When I read a good book I feel like I m hiding inside it, watching the story happen around me This is still true today When I read a great book, I fall right in and I m oblivious to everything else When I was in college, Jane Yolen, Patricia MacLachlan and Jane Dyer visited my Children s Lit class I distinctly remember thinking, That s a cool job But it didn t occur to me that it could be my job I was planning to be a psychologist or teacher I taught in early childhood programs for many years before I considered writing my own stories After reading hundreds of books to young kids, I was fascinated by their responses to different books Why did they love books I hated Why didn t they love books I loved What made a good book good Eventually I started putting my own words to paper, and later, that led me here It s actually a little odd writing this biography As a writer, I m always looking for ways to improve my craft and better understand the writing process, so I m intrigued by the personal backgrounds of my favorite authors But as a reader, I prefer not to be aware of the writer at all I just want to fall into books, and I don t blame anyone else who feels the same way I hope readers fall into mine.
