About Connie

Connie Biewald has been writing stories in an effort to understand human relationships since she was five years old. She has been a teacher for more than 30 years, sharing her love of reading and writing with homeschoolers and hundreds of students in public and private schools. For the past twenty-five years she has been both a librarian and a Growth Education resource person at the Fayerweather Street School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In her Growth Ed role, Connie works with children, parents and other teachers exploring the essential topics of human development-self esteem, the use and misuse of power, altruism and community service, sexuality, appreciation and understanding of differences. This work is reflected in her writing. She is the recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council artist grant and a PEN New England Discovery Award. Connie is also a mother of two adult sons and an aunt to seven nieces and five nephews.
