About the Author

Julie Halpern is the author of "Get Well Soon" and "Don't Stop Now," as well as the picture book "Toby and the Snowflakes." In addition to writing, Julie is a middle-school librarian. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, lived in Australia for six months, and created a couple of zines before she started writing books, and realized she was and always has been a writer. She is married to the artist Matthew Cordell, and they live outside Chicago with their daughter and gloriously large Siamese cat, Tobin.
