Laurie Calkhoven has always loved books and reading. When she was little, she wanted to live at the library. Later she decided to become one of the people who created the books on the shelves. Laurie has written historical novels (the Boys of Wartime series) and many works of nonfiction. She loves reading and writing about ordinary people (both fictional and real) who have the strength and the talent to be extraordinary. That’s especially true of the people featured in the You Should Meet series. She lives in New York City and can frequently be found at the library. www.lauriecalkhoven.com
