|Short Bio||Crystal Bowman
Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again. 'But the most important part,' she says, 'is to teach children that God loves them and cares about them very much.'
To recognize Karen Maizel on the street, first look down at her feet for Converse tennis shoes. Next, determine what she’s carrying; she alternates between her very first granddaughter, Sofia, and her portfolio. Finally, look for a dreamy expression around the eyes, as she envisions herself driving the Wienermobile across the country. Karen lives in Lakewood, Ohio, with her family.
