Darleen is a big kid who writes for little kids. She's had just enough good fortune to earn a degree in Professional Writing in 1986 from the University of Oklahoma, and to have gotten a few of her books published including picture books, chapter books, middle-grade novels, and a photo biography (she has many more that haven't been published!). She is an eighth-cousin to Franklin D. Roosevelt and has actually slept in the same bed as Teddy Roosevelt (though he was NOT in the bed at the same time she was!) . . . she loves funny slices of history, reading, writing, and speaking in schools and attending book-related events throughout the U.S. Check out her fun web site at: www.darleenbaileybeard.com .
