Chara Curtis was raised in southern Minnesota, where she learned to play the piano, guitar, cello, and assorted merry instruments. Since her elementary school days, she has enjoyed writing essays, short stories, songs, and poems. She sang in school choral groups and headed her own rock 'n roll band while she was in high school.
Chara worked in music publishing and advertising in Nashville and Chicago before diving headlong into her writing career and moving to the Pacific Northwest. In 1996, Chara lived in Istanbul, Turkey, for one year as she awaited publication of her picture book, NO ONE WALKS ON MY FATHER'S MOON, which brought her the Washington State Governor's Writers Award in 1997. Her other picture books include ALL I SEE IS PART OF ME, FUN IS A FEELING, and HOW FAR TO HEAVEN?
