Writer for children—reader forever…that’s Vivian Kirkfield in five words. She's been skydiving and banana-boat riding, but when she isn’t looking for ways to fall from the sky or sink under the water, she can be found writing picture books in the village of Amherst, NH where the old stone library is her favorite hangout and her young grandson is her favorite board game partner. Her books include Pippa’s Passover Plate, Sweet Dreams, Sarah, Four Otters Toboggan: An Animal Counting Book, and Making Their Voices Heard: The Inspiring Friendship of Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe.
