L is for Elaine Landau

Bornanother mysteriously difficult to find birthday
Excellent BooksOil Spill!, Big Cats (Hunters of the Night), and over 300 other non-fiction books for children.  Many have won awards.

From Her Life:  Elaine lives in Florida and loves to write under a palm tree.  She also loves traveling to research her books.

Advice for Aspiring Writers:   Don't be afraid of hard work.  Elaine wanted to be a writer as a young girl and even wrote a book when she was only nine years old!  Many adults told her not to pursue a writing career because it was so difficult to succeed.  Elaine worked hard, though, and now has an impressive list of titles and awards.  She also has an awesome website!

Awww, I love that she wrote a book at age 9! I wrote books that young, too, but my books consisted of five chapters, twenty pages lol. More like a short story or novelette!
