About the author (2004)

Dana Lurie grew up in Albany, NY where she enjoyed writing fictitious stories since elementary school. Writing for fun took the sidelines while she worked toward graduating with a B.S. in Communications from Ithaca College and then moved to the suburbs of Boston to open her own copy center business. After 11 years in Boston, she realized a life long dream by leaving the brain freeze of the northeast and moving to sunny South Florida. Free to enjoy the warm weather and inspired by the Latin sounds all around, her love for dance and exercise took center stage. She became a fitness instructor of Latin Dance Aerobics and Pilates and a performer of Latin Ballroom Dance. Her biggest inspiration, however, came from her children and she returned to her love of writing. Another dream was realized when her first book, Its Time For Bed, Sleepyhead, was published, followed shortly by the Tomgirlz series of chapter books based on, you guessed it, her daughter. Her writing is full of messages of love, hope and positive attitudes. The greatest thing I can do is to spend my time encouraging children to adventure through life by reading and writing, says Lurie. I want to teach them that when they take their dreams, turn them into goals and then into plans their dreams really can come true.
