More About the Author
Though Ransom has published 120 books, she believes she is finally writing the books she was meant to write. As a ninth generation Virginian, she's often written about her native state--historical fiction, nonfiction, biography. A few years ago, she decided to write funny contemporary books set in Virginia. IVA HONEYSUCKLE DISCOVERS THE WORLD (Disney-Hyperion), IVA HONEYSUCKLE MEETS HER MATCH (Disney-Hyperion), and REBEL MCKENZIE (Disney-Hyperion) all celebrate life in small quirky towns that can be found anywhere in the South. Where else would you find a cat named Doublewide with a fondness for pudding cups? Where else would double-first cousins be best-best friends or (in Iva's case) best-enemies? Ransom loves writing books for kids and teens that will make them laugh and inspire them to explore the richness of their own backyards, no matter where they live.
