ABOUT JEANNE KAUFMAN
I write stories, books, and poetry for children. I’m also a part-time professor of criminal justice and criminology, which fills my brain with a very interesting mishmash of information and interests. My poetry and fiction has been published in Highlights, High Five, Turtle, and The School Magazine of Australia. My first picture book, Young Henry and the Dragon (Shenanigan Books, 2011), was a finalist for the 2011 Colorado Book Awards. Every year, I volunteer at the Annual Meeting of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of SCBW where I get to hang out with some of the best writers and illustrators on the planet. I currently live in Colorado with my husband, two lovely daughters, and two big fat cats.
