“…smart, hip and hysterical.”
“…filled with real personalities, interesting twists, imaginative details—and just the right touch of magic.”
“…wit and humor that will appeal to every kid and every one who ever was a kid, including those of us wishing we could be kids again…”
—Sara V. Olds,
Hanne’s Farewell To Juarez
“…takes ‘happily ever after’ a hop, skip and a jump farther, leading the child in us all on a merry romp through ‘what if’.”
Roberta Olsen Major wore out two toy typewriters as a child before her parents realized she needed the real thing. Throughout junior high and high school, she tapped out lurid, angst-filled stories peopled with impossibly beautiful characters speaking highly improbable dialogue.
Earning a BA from Brigham Young University, she worked for a time as a librarian in sensible shoes, before switching her Major to the care and feeding of a science-minded husband and two charming children.
A published playwright and reviewer of children’s books, she now lives in Texas, where she tap dances, collects dust, and is, as always, working on her next book.
The Royal Pains series started with THE PRINCE IN THE FLOWER BED and THE SEVENTH DWARF. Look for future volumes: THE 24-KARAT KING, THE ICE CREAM CRONE, and THE TROLL PRINCESS.
