Biographical Sketch

Ann McGovern was born May 25, 1930, in New York, NY. She became an author of books for children, and has won many awards and honors. She feels that her writing reflects three stages of her life--ideas she strongly believes in, her desire for knowledge, and exciting personal experiences. She has traveled widely, and is an avid scuba diver. Her books range from biography to science to folklore to history to picture books to poetry to novels.
