After 40 years of teaching English in three states, Virginia White was able to follow her dream of writing stories for young readers. In all of her books, she wants young readers to feel comfortable with their own strengths and talents, and using cats with differences has been her avenue to that goal. Virginia enjoys reading her books to elementary students and listening to their ideas of what her “little honker” (her main cat character) will do next. Virginia has two wonderful daughters and three delightful grandchildren. She lives with her husband and three cats and test drives all of her writing on her grandchildren. According to Virginia, being an active grandmother is absolutely grand!
