About the author (2002)

Kirkpatrick Hill lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. She was an elementary school teacher for more than thirty years, most of that time in the Alaskan "bush." Hill is the mother of six children and the grandmother of eight. Her three earlier books, "Toughboy and Sister, Winter Camp", and "The Year of Miss Agnes", have all been immensely popular. Her fourth book with McElderry Books, "Dancing at the Odinochka", was a Junior Library Guild Selection. Hill's visits to a family member in jail inspired her to write "Do Not Pass Go".
