Kerry Aradhya has loved playing with words since she was a little girl. She is the author of the picture book biography ERNO RUBIK AND HIS MAGIC CUBE (Peachtree, 2024) and more than a dozen poems in award-winning children’s magazines such as Babybug, Ladybug, and Highlights High Five. She also supports young writers in her role as a collaborating artist with the nonprofit Society of Young Inklings. When not writing for children, Kerry works as a science writer and editor, performs with a quirky modern dance ensemble, and occasionally muses about children’s literature and dance at her blog, Picture Books & Pirouettes. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, their two daughters, and one cute but naughty pooch named Sofie.
