More about Me
Hello, I'm Annie Weissman, a Bronx-born writer who spent most of my childhood across the G.W. Bridge in Teaneck, New Jersey, with my brother and sister. I graduated from the University of Rochester with a B.A. in History, a minor in English, and a teaching certificate.
Soon afterward, I married and moved to Cleveland. Here I found my niche teaching dropouts at The Griswold Institute. I returned to school full time at Case Western Reserve School of Library Science, where I earned my M.S.L.S.
My next move found me in Phoenix, where I worked first as a children's librarian and then as a school librarian. My first book, The Castle of Chuchurumbel/El Castillo de Chuchurumbel, a bilingual picture book, was published in 1987.
After working as an assistant principal and principal, I returned to school library work. I've written a total of three books for teachers and librarians: Transforming Storytimes into Reading and Writing Lesson, Do Tell! Storytelling for You and Your Students, and A is for Almanac: Complete Lesson Plans to Teach Reference Sources K-8.
My fiction book, Reinvented Lives, is a novel about taking care of an elderly parent and the mayhem that ensues in families.
My latest book, Sex and Single Senior, is about internet dating; the good the bad and the ugly, for single seniors.
I write "The Single Senior" column for The Pinewood News. I live in Munds park, a small town 16 miles south of Flagstaff, from May through mid-October.
