Maryrose Wood

Maryrose started out writing for the theatre and film, as a lyricist, librettist, playwright and screenwriter. She was the first recipient of the Georgia Bogardus Holof Lyricist Award, and is a three-time recipient of the Richard Rodgers Award for New Musicals, which is administered by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

She has written a number of novels for young adults including WHY I LET MY HAIR GROW OUT, HOW I FOUND THE PERFECT DRESS and WHAT I WORE TO SAVE THE WORLD.

She enjoys gardening, kayaking, napping, reading tons of books, and trying new vegetarian recipes (with mixed success). She lives in New York with her two children, two kittens, and a small, feisty, red-headed dog.
