Alida Clemans

Alida Clemans is working on a fourth novel for children. When she's not writing books about growing up or reading for fun, she is a full-time writer for an independent school in New York City. Prior to her long career in education, Alida was a newspaper reporter and a magazine editor. She recently received an M.F.A. in fiction from St. Francis College in Brooklyn, where she completed her third middle-grade novel. Alida lives in Manhattan with her husband and a scruffy, one-eyed dog. Her daughter and son are on their own now but visit often for home-cooked dinners.
