Ever since writing her first play in the fourth grade, Trudi fell in love with storytelling. As a TV reporter, she got to tell other people's stories. Now, she tells her own!

Trudi writes the EXPLORER ACADEMY series, National Geographic's first fiction series for kids. Her other fiction titles include MY TOP SECRET DARES & DON'TS, THE SISTER SOLUTION, STEALING POPULAR, and THE SECRETS OF A LAB RAT series (all from Aladdin). She's also the author of more than 90 nonfiction children's books.

Trudi's married to her college sweetheart, Bill, and lives to serve her cats, Pippin, Woody, and Emmylou. When she isn't reading, she's wrestling yarn from the kitty gallery to crochet or baking bread. And yes, Trudi Trueit IS her real name.

After that, I will have a round of revisions to do for my editor so it takes her a few months to read it and give me notes. The revision will take about a month or so. While my editor and I are busy with the manuscript, an artist is designing the cover, the sales/marketing team is promoting the book, and other people are working behind the scenes. So from the time that I begin writing the book until it is actually published takes 1 - 2 years! Thanks for the question!(less)
