A native of the Washington, DC area, Patricia O’Connell Pearson spent many happy years teaching history and social studies in the Fairfax County, Virginia, public schools and later wrote history curriculum and materials in the private sector. With a B.A. in history, an M.Ed. in secondary education, and enormous enthusiasm for sharing the stories of history, she earned an MFA in Writing for Young People and now writes both historical fiction and nonfiction for ages ten and up. When she is not writing about history, she can often be found talking about history as a volunteer with the National Park Service in Washington, D.C. She lives in the City of Fairfax, Virginia.
