Author Biography - Gloria D. Miklowitz
Gloria D. Miklowitz is the author of over 60 fiction and nonfiction books for children and young adults. Her books have won national and international awards and deal with important issues such as racial injustice, steroid abuse, date violence and militia involvement. Three of her novels were made into award-winning television specials, including one which won the Emmy for "Best Children's Special" in 1985 (The War Between the Classes). A frequent speaker at schools, Ms. Miklowitz has also taken part in conferences in the United States, South Africa and Sweden. After graduating from the University of Michigan, Miklowitz married and moved to California where she became a script writer of documentary films on rockets and torpedoes for the Navy Department. Her husband, a scientist, became Professor of Engineering at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. When her second son was born she left her job and began writing for children, entering a manuscript in a national contest and selling her first book. As her children grew older she wrote for middle grades and then young adults. More than half her published books are for the older reader. She says, "I write because I like to try on different lives through my characters and want to help young people find answers to their problems." A widow, Ms. Miklowitz lives in La Canada, California. Her two sons are college professors of Philosophy and Psychology. All four Miklowitzes have books in print and one granddaughter is now trying her hand at being a writer.
