Lorri Horn is an educator and the author of Dewey Fairchild, Parent Problem Solver, which received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, who included it among the "Best Middle Grade Books of 2017." The sequel comes out October 2018. She has a degree in English, a teaching credential, has been Nationally Board Certified, and taught public school for 15 years. She loves cheese (and wants it to be its own food group, which made a former life working on a vegan book a challenge), humor, baking, books, and spending time with her family. Lorri's background as a career schoolteacher and instructional leader make her especially sympathetic to the needs and perspectives of children, and this sensitivity features in her work as an author. Lorri blogs on her website, lorrihorn.com. Her work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, Phi Delta Kappan, The College Board, and Mayim's Vegan Table. Lorri lives in California with her husband, son, and their dog, Wolfie.
