Lee Littlewood

Lee Littlewood

When Lee Littlewood was a kid, she enjoyed losing herself in the Nancy Drew and Bobbsey Twin books, the Little House on the Prairie series and Roald DahI's "James and the Giant Peach" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." Through her column  she hopes to lure young readers back from electronic temptations to have the same experiences she did.

Her degree from Purdue University in journalism and public relations helps with the technical aspects of writing; her pure love of kids' literature helps her stay interested in words and pictures meant for tots to teens. She lives in San Diego with her husband and three children.
