Janet Gingold grew up in a big old house with five brothers, three sisters and two very busy parents. While at the University of Michigan, she decided to use science to solve human problems. This led her to the practice of medicine. After 20 years of general pediatrics, she decided to look for solutions through education instead of medication. She spends most of her time teaching, reading, writing and learning new cool stuff about the way life works. She is the author of three novels for growing people: Superfoot, Finch Goes Wild and Danger: Long Division. She lives in Maryland with her husband. They have three grown children.
