About Marianne Richmond
For 16 years, Marianne ran her own publishing company, winding down in 2010 to make way for a partnership with Sourcebooks, Inc., one of the leading and largest independent publishers in North America. Since then, she has traveled the country, reading to and speaking with thousands of children about celebrating their own voice and stories. Though Publisher's Weekly calls her "an author on the rise," Richmond's favorite letter is from an elementary school teacher who said, "I feel like a better me after reading your books."
Marianne lives in Franklin, TN with her husband, four kids, and one beloved dog, Otis.
