Biographical Sketch

Gloria Skurzynski was born July 6, 1930, in Duquesne, PA. She became a writer, with many awards and honors for her work. She dropped out of college, married, and had a family; she did not begin writing until the last of her five daughters had begun attending school. Many of her books deal with historical topics, or with high-tech topics, two of her interests. She also wrote a series of mysteries for teens, set in various national parks and preserves.
