B.B. Swann is a mother of three young adults, a wife (of another big kid but don’t tell him she said that), and a 20+ year veteran teacher of little firsties. She has all the age groups covered and draws on their influence when writing her books. Picture book, young adult, new adult, and beyond, they all have one thing in common—life experiences, both the good and the challenging.

She graduated from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL with her Bachelor’s of Ed. in Early Childhood Education, then left the corn capital to receive her Masters of Ed. in Language and Literacy from National Louis University, in Chicago.

Originally from Winthrop Harbor, Illinois (go ahead, look it up, it’s a real place) she now resides in an Illinois suburb

Walking, running, or riding my bike gives me the freedom to get away from distractions and sort of commune with the character in my head. I think it has something to do with endorphins. :) My favorite part is when I get an idea for a character's part in my book and it sends goosebumps across my skin. That's when I know I've really hit on something good for my story.(less)

If I could join any fictional book world, I would definitely go into one of the fantasy books I've read. Harry Potter, Eragon, Fablehaven, and a few that I've been blessed to read as a critique partner, I would love to be able to do magic, ride a dragon, meet mystical unicorns and fairies. The closest I've come in real life is The wizarding world of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, and that was just a tease. If anyone figures out a way to send me in for real, let me know!(less)
