Terry Catasús Jennings is an award-winning author of children's non-fiction and fact-based fiction. She writes for various educational outlets, including the Smithsonian's Science and Technology for Children series.
"Stories live in my head. They have, ever since I can remember. Not fiction; but an endless reporting of the funny, interesting facts of life. As a child I had visions of spending hours writing by candlelight in a garret, swaddled in blankets like Jo Marsh even though I lived in a one-story house in Cuba. My vision didn’t come true until after I had already lived half my life—assuming I live to be a hundred—when raising teenagers gave me situations that begged to be written and enough time to write them."
