Jerome has spent an entire career developing educational programs for kids. After spending 15 years in educational publishing, she made the leap to full-time writing in 2001. Since then, her unique perspectives and original voice have inspired her to create and direct hundreds of children's books in many different series. Jerome's books have earned Teacher's Choice and Children's Book Council awards, and her new series that is currently launching "Cool Stuff Every Kid Should Know" (Arcadia, 2010) is already receiving kudos from the very people who often inspire her the most--the mommy bloggers!
