SCBWI-CCP CHILDREN'S BOOK CONFERENCE
KEYNOTE SPEAKER AND WORKSHOP FACILITATOR - STEVE MOOSER -- Founder and President of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI). The author of nearly sixty books for children, when Steve Mooser began writing books for children, he did it with a bang: in the space of five years he wrote 250 books, K-4, for the SWRL Reading Program published by Ginn. He has since written a number of major reading programs for several companies including Ginn, American Book Company, and Harcourt Brace, Jovanovich. Most readers know Steve for his trade books, which began with the publication of 101 Black Cats (Scholastic) in 1975, and continued through 1999's release, Maid Marian's Adventures in Sherwood Forest: A Girls to the Rescue Novel (Meadowbrook). He has written in every genre: picture books (The Ghost with the Halloween Hiccups), to series books (The Creepy Creature Club; It's a Weird, Weird School), to nonfiction (Lights! Camera! Scream!), to novels (Elvis Is Back and He’s in the Sixth Grade). His most recent easy reader series is Goofball Malone, Ace Detective.
