Tania Guarino lives with her family in New York’s Hudson Valley. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and the Children’s Writers of the Hudson Valley. She has worked in an independent bookstore, and volunteered years of her time in the library of an elementary school and her local public library. Tania is a writer of children’s picture books and has also contributed her work to Highlights High Five Magazine. Her work has been recognized by the Institute of Children’s Literature for her award winning story “Garden Party” A Counting Adventure Book. When not creating humorous stories for kids, she can be found riding her bike, gardening, or on the family boat soaking up the sun and catching fish! She enjoys a good cup-of-joe to get the wheels turnin’ and is always on the lookout for that next inspiration! A nature loving summer girl at heart, she loves to be outdoors but doesn’t like the bugs, at all! “Meet the Quackers!” is her debut picture book.
