Erin Dealey

As a high school theater teacher, Erin Dealey wrote scripts for her school assemblies because she couldn’t find any good skits for 35+ kids, and they weren’t supposed to do much Christmas stuff at the winter assembly…. Erin writes, "One day I picked up a cheesy YA novel one of my drama students had left on stage and thought, I can do that.

As it turns out, children’s books are a lot like theater. My background in theater allows me to create strong characters and I can hear the dialog in my head. The idea for my first picture book, Goldie Locks Has Chicken Pox popped into my head while I was writing the YA."
