About Kidsbiographer

Dorothy A. Dahm has been interested in children’s biographies ever since a biography of Amelia Earhart inspired her and a friend to write poems about the pioneering aviatrix when they were ten years old. In 2008, she earned a MA in Professional Writing from University College Falmouth in Cornwall, England. She has written for publications and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic. At present, she is working on middle-grade and picture-book biographies. In May 2014, she appeared on a panel about biographies for young adults at Biographer International Organization’s annual conference. She lives in Vermont with her cat, Mandy, and teaches English at Castleton State College.
