Wendy Mass is the New York Times bestselling author of The Candymakers and twenty other novels for young readers, which have been nominated for over 75 state book awards and translated into 18 languages. They include A Mango-Shaped Space, Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, the Willow Falls series that began with 11 Birthdays, Every Soul a Star, and Pi in the Sky. With her husband, she writes a new series for beginning readers called Space Taxi. Her most recent release is The Candymakers and the Great Chocolate Chase. She just returned from a five week cross-country RV trip, so hopefully she and her family members are still speaking to each other. Visit her at wendymass.com.
