All About Andrea

Me
Me without my glasses. You look really fuzzy from here.

Once upon a time, a small, bespectacled chick of African-American, Jamaican and Panamanian descent escaped from her tiny suburban Jersey town to study writing in New York City.

Immediately after graduating from NYU, she grabbed her MFA degree and fled to a traveling circus.

After traveling the Eastern Seaboard with clowns, elephants, and carnies, she escaped from the circus and ran away to Hollywood.

Then she wrote, wrote and wrote and went to lots of meetings. She worked at major studios and minor studios and even wrote for a tiny but heartfelt television show that still makes people cry.

Eventually, she fled the studios to make the world a better place by teaching computer skills to veterans and other people struggling in the job market.

While teaching, she fell in love with writing novels, stand up comedy routines, middle grade books, and picture books. Especially picture books.

The bespectacled chick now lives in sunny Southern California with her handsome sweetheart, their purry ninja kittens named Sophie Grace and Scooter, and their betta fish named Monsieur Clair de Lune, whose bowl is maintained by the services of Mr. Andretti, a gold mystery snail.
