About the Author
Phoebe Fox was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona where she lives with her husband and three sons who she calls her inspiration. After graduating from the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University, Fox completed her Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction, also from ASU. She taught first grade before becoming a Library Media Specialist in the Tempe School District. She most recently worked as a librarian at Christ Church School in Paradise Valley. I write for young readers because I adore children's books and children, says Fox. If I can create a story that makes a child smile, laugh or nod his or her head in understanding, I feel as though I have helped them learn to love reading.
