About the author:

Lisa Rogers is an elementary school librarian and a former newspaper reporter and editor. She grew up in West Long Branch, NJ, not far from where Thaddeus Marshall, the inspiration for William Carlos Williams' poem "The Red Wheelbarrow," tended his garden. "16 Words: William Carlos Williams and the Red Wheelbarrow" is her first book for children.

Lisa received a 2016 PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Children's Book Discovery Award for an early version of "16 Words." She holds a master's degree in Library and Information Science and two degrees in English Literature.

Lisa lives with her family near the halfway point of the Boston Marathon, which she's run four times. She loves to garden, kayak, paint, and have adventures with her sweet and stubborn coonhound, Tucker. Tucker's personality inspired her rhyming picture book, "Hound Won’t Go," published on April 1, 2020.
