Biography: Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton's first published work was a note passed to a boy in third grade. You would have thought this most embarrassing moment would have stopped her writing career. But instead, Laurie has gone on to write forty books and is the author/illustrator of two more.
Laurie has been published in the trade, educational, craft and Christian Market. "Why Cowboys Sleep with their Boots On" is Laurie's best-selling picture book. It won the Premier Print Award given by Eastman Kodak and has sold over 45,000 copies since publication.
Laurie wrote and illustrated "God Be In My Heart", 1999, and "Red, White, And Blue", 2002. The Huebner Museum of Children's Picture Book Art, housed in the Toledo Public Library, honored Laurie by purchasing and exhibiting a piece of art from "Red, White, And Blue". Martha Stewart's Radio Station highlighted "Red, White, And Blue". The Children's Book Council invited Laurie to write about Amercia's freedoms as related to her book "Red, White, And Blue", for their premier online magazine.
The Children's Book Committee of Bank Street College of Education selected "A Young Man's Dance", as among the best Children's Books of the year, 2007.
Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton is an international speaker, addressing students, educators, and writers throughout the United States and Mexico. More information can be on Laurie's website at 222.laurieknowlton.com
