For Children

Trish Marx

Trish Marx is the author of more than one dozen non-fiction books for children ranging from history and biography to environmental issues and the arts.

Marx earned a master's degree in journalism and was inspired to write non-fiction after a move to England connected her with World War II survivors, who she says had "wonderful stories to tell."

Marx has received many honors for her writing, including awards from Parents magazine, Book Links and Bank Street College of Education. Marx advises young writers to "Read, read, read," to keep journals, and to not be afraid to "jot down ideas."
