About meValerie Frankel was born at an early age. In order to finance her hobbies of paper napkin collecting and library hopping, she teaches creative writing for children and teens, along with teaching Composition at San Jose State University. She does storytelling for kids and has taught most grades, from kindergarten through high school. Her many short stories appeared in the anthologies Legends of the Pendragon, In the Outposts of Beyond, and several best of the year anthologies. She’s also been published in Rosebud Magazine, The Oklahoma Review, and seventy other magazines. After earning a B.A. at UC Davis, she became the youngest person ever to receive a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing degree from San Jose State University, an event that has earned her only limited wealth and success. She enjoys dancing, acting, and costuming in what little remains of her spare time, and reads a novel every day, just for fun. She would have gone crazy long ago, except for her collection of singing potatoes. Many of her short stories lurk on her website, along with writing tips, games, reading lists, and an interactive fantasy kingdom especially for kids. Please visit to begin the adventure.
