Linda Kao

Linda Kao
Linda Kao grew up in California and spent most weekends throughout elementary school hauling books home from the library to read on the living room rug. After completing her degree at Stanford University, she taught elementary school for several years before earning a Ph.D. in Education from UCLA, where she discovered that writing fiction was far more fun than writing research papers. She continued to write between returning to teaching and raising children, and in 2014, she received the SCBWI Sue Alexander Award. She has published short stories and poems in Highlights for Children, Ladybug, Fun for Kidz, and Boys' Quest. Linda currently lives in Southern California with her family and enjoys running, reading, and attending her children’s sporting events.
