ARIANNE COSTNER is the author of My Life as a Potato. She's a part-time pianist and full-time mom who enjoys writing stories after the kids go to bed. Much of her inspiration comes from her time teaching middle school English to fun and very lively students. She has lived in Arizona, Utah, California, and Chile, but calls Arizona home. She writes for kids who love reading and for those who usually don't. If she can get you to laugh, she calls it a win.
