From the back flap of How I Became a Pirate
Melinda Long is a teacher as well as a picture book author. How I Became a Pirate evolved from a girlhood spent burying treasure in her backyard and an adulthood devoted to teaching literature. These days Melinda speaks pirate fluently (all teachers say "Aargh!" once in a while) and insists that bedtime stories (the scarier the better!) are a must for pirates and landlubbers alike. Melinda lives with her family in Greenville, South Carolina--not far from two former pirate hangouts.
