About the author (2001)

I wrote my first biography, Her Piano Sang, because no one had written a book for children that told the story of a woman composer.nbsp;My second book, Dance of the Swan tells the story of Anna Pavlova, who is considered by many to be the greatest ballerina ever to grace a stage.
