Author Spotlight: Melinda Long

Melinda Long was a teacher before she became a children's author. She believes her writing career evolved from the combination of a childhood spent burying pirate treasure of one sort and another in her parents' backyard, and an adulthood spent teaching literature.


Her books include: When Papa Snored (2000), Hiccup Snickup (2001), the award winning How I Became a Pirate (2003), and most recently Pirates Don't Change Diapers (2007).

She now lives with her husband and two children in Greenville, South Carolina.
