A project brought to you by Ravenstone Press - Stories of Kansas and the Great Plains
Published Authors of Children's and Young Adult Books
Whose Names Begin With "L"

Books for those who work with Children and Young Adults:
(Published books for children, or for those who work with children
in school and library settings.) 

These authors also may have children's material of other types published (magazine pieces, etc.)  For those who have a book or two listed, the choice of titles was either theirs (which they mentioned in their initial email to Jerri), or Jerri picked a title.  Those authors' names that appear as links will take you to a page with their answers to the "Authors Among Us" questionnaire, featured books, and in some cases, a photo and contact information, and information on forthcoming books.
