Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, like Estep and Tennis, knew she wanted to write. "I studied chemistry in college because that was what I most loved to learn, but it's not what I most love to do, and I knew that even then. I remain always grateful that my sophomore roommate talked me into taking an introduction to children's literature class, and that the teacher of that class, Patricia MacLachlan, not only encouraged my earliest writing but helped me join a writers' group and learn both the art and the business of writing for children."
