About The Author

Crescent Dragonwagon's books for children include Half a Moon and One Whole Star and Home Place. She's also the author of several novels, a book of poetry, and cookbooks, such as Passionate Vegetarian. With her late husband Ned Shank, she is the cofounder of the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. That's where she lives, and it can be rainy or sunny there -- sometimes both in one day. You can also visit her on the Web at www.dragonwagon.com, where the weather is whatever you'd like it to be.
