Wendy Mass has written lots of books for kids, including The Candymakers, a New York Times bestseller, Every Soul a Star, and Pi in the Sky . Michael Brawer is a teacher who drives space taxis on the side. They live in New Jersey with their two kids and two cats, none of whom have left the solar system.
Wendy Mass won the ALA Schneider Family Book Award for her first young readers' novel, A Mango-Shaped Space, about a girl with the fascinating condition synesthesia. In Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, a boy embarks on a life-changing journey. In Every Soul a Star, three very different kids are brought together by a solar eclipse; and in The Candymakers, four kids enter the contest of a lifetime. The Space Taxi series sends a boy and a talking cat on adventures to distant planets, and the Willow Falls books (beginning with 11 Birthdays) add a dash of magic into a small town. Wendy lives in New Jersey with her family.
