Anne Mazer & Ellen Potter:
Ellen Potter is the author of the award-winning middle-grade Olivia Kidney series, as well as the middle-grade novels Pish Posh and SLOB. Ellen's favorite thing about being a writer is that she gets to spend the day with Mongolian Yak herders, psychics, and bank-robbing wood sprites without ever leaving her house.
