Becky Ross Michael grew up by the Great Lakes in the lovely state of Michigan, where she also raised a family and taught for many years. She now gardens and works on her sunny balcony in North Texas. Writing for both kids and adults, her pieces appear in magazines, anthologies, and children’s readers. In addition, Becky works as an editor, helping to add the finishing touches on the books of other writers. Becky’s rhyming story about “Miss O’Blair” is based on her own wonderful elementary teacher.
