Tricia is the author of books for kids of all ages (grown-ups seem to like them, too). Her work has made numerous Best of the Year lists, been chosen as Junior Library Guild selections, and been awarded the Ohioana Award for Children’s Literature (twice!), the Ohio Arts Council Grant for Individual Excellence, and a fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center. Her two most recent books are the middle grade novel “Every Single Second”, which Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, called “an unsettling, compelling, and heart-warming tale”, and “Cody and the Mysteries of the Universe”, the second book about Cody, her family and her diverse neighborhood. Tricia is also a book critic for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and a frequent speaker at libraries, schools and conferences. Mother of three grown daughters, she lives with her husband in Cleveland Heights. You can visit her at http://www.triciaspringstubb.com or follow her on Twitter @springstubb.
