About Colleen Paeff:
Award-winning author Colleen Paeff received a Bachelor’s Degree in set design from California State University Fullerton, before becoming a bookseller, preschool teacher, and newspaper columnist. (She never did become a set designer!) Eventually, she figured out how to roll books, kids, and writing into one career––as a children’s book author. Her debut picture book, The Great Stink: How Joseph Bazalgette Solved London’s Poop Pollution Problem (illustrated by Nancy Carpenter), received a 2022 Robert F. Sibert Informational Fiction Honor Award. She lives in Los Angeles, CA and Brooklyn, NY. Learn more about Colleen at www.colleenpaeff.com or on Instagram and Twitter @ColleenPaeff.
