MEET ANN M. MARTIN
Ann M. Martin grew up in Princeton, New Jersey, and always enjoyed writing even before she was old enough to write. She would dictate stories to her mother to write them down for her. After graduating from Smith College, she became a teacher, and then an editor of children’s books before becoming a full-time writer. With 176 million copies sold to date, The Baby-sitters Club made her a household name.

In addition to The Baby-sitters Club, Ann wrote the acclaimed novels-in-letters, P.S. Longer Letter Later and Snail Mail No More, with author Paula Danziger. She also co-wrote The Doll People books with Laura Godwin, illustrated by Brian Selznick. Ann wrote several novels set in the 1960s including Belle Teal, and A Corner of the Universe which won a Newbery Honor in 2003. Her novel A Dog’s Life: The Autobiography of a Stray, was a winner of the ASPCA Henry Bergh Children’s Book Award.

Ann divides her time between New York City and upstate New York. She currently spends most of her time in her home in the Hudson Valley where she likes to write, go on long walks with her dog Sadie, watch old episodes of I Love Lucy, and make clothes for children, her favorite hobby.
