Publisher's biography
Gennifer Choldenko was the youngest in a family of four kids, where her nickname was "Snot-Nose." Her quirky sense of humor made its debut at the dinner table when Gennifer was a very little kid. After that, anything strange and funny became known as a Gennifer Joke.

Her first novel, Notes from a Liar and Her Dog, was chosen as a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, was an IRA-CBC Children's Choice and won the California Book Award for children's books. In a starred review, School Library Journal wrote, "Choldenko has a wonderfully witty way with words. Her first-person narrative is humorous, tongue-in-cheek, and as irreverent as her independent heroine."

Currently, Choldenko lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband and their two children.
