Cindy Trumbore

CINDY TRUMBORE has been involved with young people's literature for most of her career. A former editor in children's book publishing, she now writes children's books, edits books for classrooms, and teaches writing. When her friend Susan L. Roth approached her to coauthor The Mangrove Tree, Trumbore was immediately excited by the chance to research and write about Dr. Sato's work.
