About the Author

Eleanor Turino began her career in education as a reading and social studies teacher for fifth and sixth graders in Ocean Hill-Brownsville in Brooklyn, New York. After working as a children's librarian at a public library, Eleanor was a School Library Media Specialist who taught in an elementary school for twenty years.

Needless to say, children’s literature was an integral and beloved part of her curriculum. Her experiences working in education left an imprint, so she decided to make her first foray into publishing with Pick Me.

Eleanor currently resides in New York with her husband.
