More About the Author

Hi!

Here's a little background on my books.

The first one was The Girls' Guide to Life, published in 1997 and now in its second edition (2005). I love this book because it helps girls develop strong self-esteem, fight sexism in the media, and stand up for themselves in general. When I wrote it, there was a real lack of books to help girls in these areas, and I loved being able to provide that kind of book.

I've also done a series of small books for girls--most notably The Girls' Book of Wisdom--a bunch of cool quotations I put together especially for girls. The other books are The Girls' Book of Friendship (practical advice on making and keeping pals), The Girls' Book of Success and The Girls' Book of Love.

They've won awards and been translated for distribution internationally. Hallmark did a Gold Crown (hard cover) edition of The Girls' Book of Friendship. It cracks me up that this book is just as popular with women of all ages as it is with girls..

My favorite moments these days are when I get an e-mail or letter from a girl telling me that she loved one or the other of the books, or just saying hi. There is nothing better!

I hope you'll visit my web site, www.empowergirls.com. It has a quiz for girls, "quips & tips" for parents, recommended books, etc.

Cheers!

Catherine
